Steeped in the pain and sadness of war-torn children who have seen so many lives come and go around them[,] it forces us, too, to bear witness, if only for a hundred minutes.
February 24, 2006
Melancholia leans heavily toward propaganda, but the movie is well done, albeit almost overwhelmingly dark.

The acrid fog of war is palpable in Pirjo Honkasalo's magnificent documentary, The 3 Rooms of Melancholia, one of the saddest films ever made.

Honkasalo's self-consciously high-art approach seems likely, at least for American audiences, to render an already remote conflict even stranger and more exotic.

Nothing is sadder than a child who has experienced tragedy, but no trap is easier to fall into than that of dwelling on a moping kid until the image loses its meaning.

A harrowing docu look at war and militarism's wounds, as seen through the eyes of Russian and Chechen children.
