Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

In the eastern region of Donbass, a hybrid war blends open armed conflict, crimes and looting perpetrated by separatist gangs. In Donbas, war is called peace, propaganda is erected in truth and hate claims to be love. A journey through the Donbass is a series of crazy adventures in which the grotesque and the tragic mingle like life and death. This is not a tale about a region, a country or a political system but about a world lost in the after-truth and false identities. This concerns each of us.


Critic Reviews for Donbass

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (3)

A brilliant formalist, Loznitsa likes to turn his camera on crowds in motion, turning each sequence into a collective indictment.

A scathing portrait of a society where human interaction has descended to a level of barbarity more in keeping with late antiquity than the so-called contemporary civilized world.

Powerful if ultimately enervating...

Like it or not, you won't see another war film like it this year.

November 7, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

This one plays as a sometimes fevered and typically unreliable series of near-sketches of daily life in Donbass, with the tone veering from ferocious anger, to absurdist humour... the viewer is left to make sense of it all.

October 22, 2018 | Full Review…

The pacing is deliberate but this cool approach serves only to magnify the distressing insights into a dangerous world in which lawless fanatics have assumed control.
