Set in the city of Chernobyl in what is now Ukraine following the nuclear disaster of 1986, the narrative is a love story between two young Ukrainians. Both characters, however, were played by Russian actors. See more »
I saw the two mini series about this nuclear disaster that stroke Russia more than thirty years ago. I saw the European series and now this one. They speak on the same subject but not exactly from the same way. I also read the book written by Svetlana Aleksievitch, where you have hundreds of testimonies from those who survived this disaster. I think no movie nor series could be the equivalent of what this book tells. It's too much terrible, gloomy and depressing. Back to this Russian series, it's impossible not to appreciate it.
