April ´86. Chernobyl. Many lifes are effected in a tragical way from this special and dramatic moment on...
2 December 2002 | by lycka18See all my reviews

April 1986, Chernobyl, Ukraine. The movie sets off that the meltdown of reactor 4 of the Chernobyl-disaster. Yet everything deals with this catastrophe, it is not the main plot of this well made movie of soviet times. The main plot is about how those few minutes, even seconds, effects the life off so many people in a tragic way. The movie shows the tragic story of a view characters, and how they act during those dramatic days, and how there life will continue, in the worst case end. This movie leaves open the ends of many stories, yet it should be hard to draw your own end.

This movie is definitely interesting for anyone who is interested in history, nuclear power or especially in the Chernobyl-catastrophe. This movie is nothing for weak nerves, no happy end should be expected. For anyone who wants to find out more about the way Chernobyl effected the life of many people after April ´86 I would strongly recommend this movie. It is not complicated and also technical details are only set in the backround. In the end you get a nice overview over the incident itself and the following days.
