Melancholian 3 huonetta (The 3 Rooms of Melancholia) Reviews

August 10, 2005
Superbly conveys its themes of despair and lost opportunities.
July 29, 2005
Consistently moving but never quite coalesces into a strongly coherent whole.
July 28, 2005
An achingly beautiful look at the most tragic victims of the longtime war in Chechnya: children.
July 27, 2005
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.
July 26, 2005
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.
June 4, 2005
A harrowing docu look at war and militarism's wounds, as seen through the eyes of Russian and Chechen children.
