The Trader

The Trader ★★★

22 minutes of putting your life in perspective.

Take your pick:

- The old lonely lady that just wanted a grater
- The eyes of amazement of 2 kids rifling through random objects
- The old man who just wanted to escape the village

These people will pull at your heart strings. Potatoes as a currency is something I had only ever heard of from Stalin-era Russia. I didn't realise this was still very much a way of life in rural areas of Georgia.

Great little documentary that could've easily been longer, albeit super depressing as it is.
