Synopsis:
"Maidan" chronicles a civil uprising against the regime of president Yanukovych which took place in Kiev (Ukraine) in the winter of 2013/14. The film follows the progress of the revolution: from peaceful rallies, half a million strong, in the Maidan square, to the bloody street battles between the protestors and riot police. "Maidan" is a portrait of an awakening nation, rediscovering its identity. Director Sergei Loznitsa rises above current political issues and looks at the nature of the popular uprising as a social, cultural and philosophical phenomenon.
A powerful mix of enthusiasm, heroic struggle, terror, courage, aspiration, people's solidarity, folk culture, passion and self-sacrifice, "Maidan" is a stunning cinematic canvas combining classical film making style and documentary urgency.

Too static - Maidan review by ms

Spoiler Alert

More description, narrative or analysis would have made it better. It was very static and not terribly educational
