Like the creepy neighbours in a horror movie who make weird banging noises in the cellar, North Korea has become a source of furtive fascination.

Endlessly intriguing.

The movie shapes up as a vague yet intriguing survey of the hermit nation.

An intriguing yet also frustrating picture of North Korea... Álvaro Longoria ventures far beyond the typical sites of Pyongyang's impressive architecture and deserted streets.

What to make of this film and this whole propaganda game? In the end, I don't know. There's just too little real information contained in it. Oh, wait a minute... That was the whole point.

Some may find Longoria's wry tone offensive but his playfulness is what make him worth watching. If laughter kills fear, this man is quite the slayer.
