Surprisingly funny, enlightening and informative. And watchable.
Highlights the disparity between the people and their exorbitant bills, but it's also a brief history of modern Georgia, a country whose citizens are frequently failed by their government.
Devlin's movie deals with transition and displacement in the former Soviet Union. It introduces us to a highly committed international work force and to disgruntled Georgians. The movie also immerses us in a conflict that appears irreconcilable.
An arresting and fascinating story that's ultimately not only about politics and business, but also about the human condition itself.
Through the ever-hopeful eyes of Lewis, the story unfolds in unexpected directions, emerging as both a portrait of a changing Georgia and a study of power.
An instructive account of the perils of attempting to privatize decrepit public utilities in countries with stagnant economies.
The entire film has a feeling of bemusement to it, as if filmmaker Devlin can scarcely believe it's happening. It plays like a surreal comedy of errors.
Devlin introduces some interesting, often mind-blowing (at least to us capitalists) statistics of life and electricity in Tbilisi
A lively fly-on-the-wall view of the clash between old-line Communist inefficiency and well-intended capitalist progress -- and the people caught in the middle.
Lewis is a likable presence (he's the one person who seems to have a sense of humor about the whole thing), and the quick primer in recent Russian history is quite welcome.
A perfect example of a film you might watch avidly on PBS flaked out on your couch, but not one to which you might dedicate an evening at the movies.
The subject matter may sound dry on the surface, but, within the myriad problems the human race creates for itself, it crackles with an electrical charge
