    Good but odd.

    Because art means different things to different people? Also, the Ukraine suffered some of the worst casualty rates of WWII, where 1 in 4 people who lived there were killed.

    If there's one thing I've learned in my years, it's that people really overreact.

    I watched it again------'INCREASE THE RATINGS' was the only thing that came to mind--overacting

    Or the fact that this was an artistic honoring of a horrible time in Ukrainian history, and people were aware of this. Overreacting is the last thing that comes to mind. This is like saying "holocaust survivors are overreacting"

    If there is anything that I don't like is that she played an easy piece, most people in Eastern Europe are almost preconditioned to react with emotions for WWII. I am not surprised by the reactions at all.

    And - putting choice of an easy subject aside - I liked it. It played on my emotions as well.

    well, watch it a third time--the first two times I had the sound off---don't understand the lyrics---but it sounds like a sad song...


    very cute woman playing with the sand though

    reminds me of one theory of how the shroud of Turin was created--sand left on a sheet in the sun until the sun burnt the sheet of linen
