Brilliant account of inhumanity, bravery and trauma
7 November 2004 | by (Reading, England) – See all my reviews

This film shows the BBC at its best, with great acting, harrowing scenes and touching moments.

I notice that some of the comments suggest that it is anti-Serb. Well, some of the "baddies" are Croat. (The scene with the lorry-load of bodies near the end of the Bosnia scenes is a case in point.)

Perhaps it's pro-Muslim, but I think anyone watching it will realize that it is not a "goodies" and "baddies" film.

Does the film advocate military intervention on a grand scale? No.

Does it show the futility of delivering food parcels to people who are about to be massacred? Yes.

There are no easy answers to the questions asked by this film. You should watch it and remember that this all happened in a "civilized" European country, just a few years ago.

The evil shown is not Serb or Croat or Muslim evil. The evil is hate, that betrays God.

At our church, a visiting priest explained that he would not be visiting again for a few months, because he is an army chaplain and his unit was off to Kosovo. Kosovo is a different fall-out from Yugoslavia, but, having seen this film, I prayed long and hard for him.

Don't miss it and be prepared to be upset.
