Honeyland ★★★★

I knew this was a documentary beforehand but completely forgot while watching. The arrival of the loud nomadic family feels like a legitimate plot twist and makes this feel less genuine, but at the same time more captivating and interesting as it follows almost legitimate plot line. You cant help but feel bad for everyone involved but there is something so embarrasing, and this is probably more enhanced in my experience because I too am from a Balkan country, but the way those people carry themselves is entirely familiar to me aswell, and I cant help but feel frustrated that we got the chaos ridden look into their lives, instead of gorgeus landscapes and Hatidže just existing as one of final reminders of our primitive past
