LEFFEST. It's impossible to avoid the idea that from 2 or 3 determinant models, festival films resemble and constitute thematic variations from such formal models. So when there was the distinction between Yuri Ilyenko and Parajanov or Yosseliani, we now have the very same serious grave Mamulia's and Vasyanovych's formulation, with the same wide-screen framing ability. That is, monotony.
In "Atlantis", Ukraine is a desolate wasteland, full of despair and wounds. A man suffered from PTSD journeys through this godforsaken land to salvage his colleague soldiers, while this journey overlaps the road of toxic masculinity which loosen because of the act of salvation and people's deep kindness. Dir. Vashanovych tells that the masculinity cured from toxic means Ukraine's peace. Very modern, absolute moving.
