Grim and fascinating. The effects of war. Thanks to Loznitsa for raiding such powerful film archives in a coherent way.

Wordless documentary about siege living, in which people go about their routines against a backdrop of torn buildings and periodic bombings, filing unblinkingly past corpses and filling mass graves. Powerful stuff, full of evocative, uncomfortable imagery, some of which is remarkable to see. For history simpletons like me, some kind of narration that puts what we're seeing into context might have been useful, although the film retains a kind of naturalistic appeal without this.
