Well shot doc concerning an interesting (and fascinating) aspect of North Korean life and culture, dictated by the state's ideology as we know. Personally attractive because i don't think that "the subordination of the individual's desires to the needs of the collective" is something despicable in a mass society, but, I point out, with all the reservations due to lack of informations of this still unknown country.
As fascinating for its depiction of the swirling rainbow geometries of the Mass Games spectacles & the disciplined girls' training to participate in them, as for an extremely rare glimpse into the repressive, near-Orwellian North Korean society. Equal parts Man On Wire and 1984; one of the most memorable documentaries I've seen. ★★★★★
