Movie Info

This documentary offers evidence that the transition from communism to free-market capitalism has proven rocky for many Eastern European countries. A huge American energy corporation assumes control of the now privatized electric company in the capital of the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. The company tries to help the Georgian people grow accustomed to paying for their electricity. But the Georgians, like many who were formerly under Soviet rule, are used to a different way of life.

  • Surprisingly funny, enlightening and informative. And watchable.

    May 20, 2004 | Rating: 3/5
  • 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.

    May 14, 2004 | Rating: B+
  • 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.

    January 23, 2004 | Rating: 3/4
  • An instructive account of the perils of attempting to privatize decrepit public utilities in countries with stagnant economies.
