The 3 Rooms of Melancholia

The 3 Rooms of Melancholia
dir. Pirjo Honkasalo/Finland, Sweden, Denmark/2004/110 min.
Atlantic, sala B

This award-winning documentary reveals how the Chechen War has psychologically affected children in Russia and Chechnya. Divided into three episodes or 'rooms,' the film is characterized by an elegantly paced, observational style, which uses little dialog, minimal voice-over commentary and a spare but evocative musical score.
