Orange Winter (2007)
Critic Reviews for Orange Winter
Orange Winter is more than a mere history lesson. [This] movie characterizes a body politic as a living thing,and charts its internal changes as if it were the protagonist in a drama.
Andrei Zagdansky's tedious time capsule of the event makes peculiar assumptions about audience familiarity with Ukrainian politics beyond what trickled into the headlines, blowing past potentially fascinating story threads for 72 minutes of pure B-roll.
The deliberate narration feels at stylistic odds with the socially visceral imagery, but this artistic juxtaposition lends its portrayed events an appropriately mythic tinge.
[Doc's] failure to systematically lay clear, linear historical groundwork for the events of late 2004 and 2005 is obviously deliberate, but without it the film is unenlightening to anyone not already conversant with the history of modern Ukraine.
