Quotes

[first lines]
Smiling Fighter: Do something. Do something for the revolution.
Camera Man: I'm filming.
Smiling Fighter: This is the Ukrainian revolution. It's fun.
Fighter #2: They're shooting over there! Don't go there! They're shooting over there!
Smiling Fighter: There, he fell. I was just dragging a dead body. You can't surprise me with anything. You thought it would be easy, just go to Maidan, hang out a little and then go back? Not me. I always wanted to be on the front lines.
Camera Man: That's it. He's dead.

Creation of awareness
15 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

I'm a Ukrainian. After watching the trailer I got goose bumps. Whatever was going on in Ukraine and things that are still happening, turned all the people very patriotic, people could see the beauty of our country, they could see how unique it is. I guess this movie means a lot for all of us. We want to stop the war in our country, so we want to create the awareness among individuals from other countries. I recommend you to watch it, so you could see what's happening on your own. In the modern world, it is so easy to manipulate people using media, so I guess this is a great opportunity for everyone to decide what he or she thinks about it, not what society does. Revolution is basically a war with society. Its aim is change for better. Many Ukrainians passed away as they wanted to bring a change. Ukrainians have not reached their aim yet, but this movie can help us to take an enormous step towards it.
