Review

A senior class in a high school in Ukraine. An introverted high school girl Masha hangs out with her friends Yana and Senja, but she thinks of herself as an outsider always. Meantime, a classmate Sasha wants to join the military if she could get out from her interfering mother. Senior classmates have faced a desire to be independent, a fuzzy future, a relationship between love and friendship, mimicking an adult, and searching for the self. Somehow, they must pass this period of their lives.
STOP-ZEMLIA is Ukraine’s female director Kateryna Gornostai’s debut film. The film tells a very personal story of adolescence and the story will win the audience’s sympathy who went through a stormy period in their youth. (CHUN Jinsu)
