Press Quotes

Ukrainian filmmaker Oleksandr Techynskyi's latest movie is naturalistic documentary at its best, with the titular Danube region as the main protagonist.

The footage is gorgeous, even when it shows objectively ugly images. Colours change as winter advances, from the soft yellows and browns to the icy white and bright blue, contrasting with the grey skies.

The idea of living in the delta is translated so well to the screen that the viewer can almost smell the stench of animal dung and burning garbage, and feel the biting winter air and the texture of the snow crumbling under the feet.
