I'm not joking. I saw this at the Russian Film Festival in Brisbane. The synopsis read "The film tells about the history of the Holocaust through the stories of its unwitting Witnesses." What a load of bollocks. It's a woman dancing around to music, shot from a low angle so you can only see her feet. No dialog. No faces. Just feet. Seriously this sort of garbage should come with a warning.
