An Unforgettable Documentary!
11 November 2019 | by VishalLodayaSee all my reviews

It takes time to soak in a humbling and an unforgettable documentary.

It gives a simple message: 'The relationship between humanity and the world in which we live must be handled with care'.

The best part is your realisation that you are watching a documentary in Macedonia. Every moment that was captured was captured at the right time. Even if they would've hired the best actors and actresses from any industry they would've still not been able to construct a perfect documentary as this is.

#HatidzeMuratova has responded so beautifully to directors #TamaraKotevska and #LjubomirStefanov.

Their simple message of 'Bees shall sting you, if you try and overpower them' narrates bigger understanding of life (plants, animals and various living beings) that all viewers go through.

A WONDERFUL MUST WATCH.
