Critic Reviews‘Its hardly a hidden gem, given that it was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Live Short but its a film that i've returned to again and again for its atmosphere; its sparse, haunting script; and its wonderful editing. Its based on the same source text as HBO's Chernobyl miniseries, so it's an interesting companion piece if you were a fan of the series. It's also just a brilliant piece of filmmaking' - Aoife Kelleher
