Vitaly Mansky Republik Cheska, 2015

ihor's rating of the film Under the Sun

An attempt to show the life of a "normal" North Korean life through a young girl. Everything is done according to official script set by the government and yet Mansky is still able to show the subversiveness and falseness of the supposed normality. At times alternating from humor to sheer horror the attempt at even a highly coordinated depiction of a "normal" North Korean life fails miserably.
