I spent half of this week - the hottest week in Amsterdam for years - with a cold and feeling sorry for myself whilst sitting in front of a fan swimming in a pool of discarded tissue paper and sadness. I wasn’t perked up by this documentary, but I did finish it knowing and understanding a lot more about Belarussia, and why people refer to it as Europe’s last dictatorship. This documentary is worth fifty-five minutes and two seconds of your time, even if you aren’t full of a cold, and even if the weather is amazing.
