brsan’s review published on Letterboxd:
Based on a true event.
This film testifies the time of Variola Vera in Belgrade, 1972.
The film shows not only an isolated hospital but also the mental state of all social classes in the time of a panic. From the ordinary person, the patient, through the medical personnel, the doctors and the authorities.
Even after 50 years of Variola to date, not much has changed. The same unwillingness, the same unprofessionality, the same fear.
