Melancholian 3 huonetta (The 3 Rooms of Melancholia) Reviews

Film Threat

Nothing is sadder than a child who has experienced tragedy, but no trap is easier to fall into than that of dwelling on a moping kid until the image loses its meaning.

Honkasalo's self-consciously high-art approach seems likely, at least for American audiences, to render an already remote conflict even stranger and more exotic.

Honkasalo moves somberly and way too slowly through these three linked scenarios, and the droning score may induce sleep in the eyes of audience members.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Steeped in the pain and sadness of war-torn children who have seen so many lives come and go around them[,] it forces us, too, to bear witness, if only for a hundred minutes.

The acrid fog of war is palpable in Pirjo Honkasalo's magnificent documentary, The 3 Rooms of Melancholia, one of the saddest films ever made.

An achingly beautiful look at the most tragic victims of the longtime war in Chechnya: children.

| Original Score: 3.5/4

Consistently moving but never quite coalesces into a strongly coherent whole.

A harrowing docu look at war and militarism's wounds, as seen through the eyes of Russian and Chechen children.

Superbly conveys its themes of despair and lost opportunities.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

Melancholia leans heavily toward propaganda, but the movie is well done, albeit almost overwhelmingly dark.
