Melodiya dlya sharmanki

Kira Muratova Ukraine, 2009

goverselle's rating of the film Melody for a Street Organ

it reminded me my own life, as we slept at the railway station in Kiev (the same as in the movie) with my grandpa. But Kira Muratova doesn't know much about real dangers of that place... First of all cops don't let people sleep in the waiting rooms. You can sit there but you have to keep your eyes opened. As for me, I think that this allegory is raw. Neither a social drama nor an art film.
