CGiii Comment

Quite possibly, the worst opening music you are likely to hear...

An unconvincing hybrid of documentary and drama...the sound effects alone will have you running for the nearest exit.

As a comment on Communism and the expectations of a life - it's dated and uninspired.

Dismally dull and fatally depressing...some even dare to call it a masterpiece!
