A story about soldiers who suddenly find out that it's for real
A great movie if you're prepared to look a bit deeper. It shows a group of soldiers who never participated in real combat are sent to Bosnia as peacekeepers. Arguably, they are civilians in uniforms. Faced with a real enemy, they are forced to handle their fears and endure the shock of shooting at people and being hurt themselves. The finale makes you think whether fighting against the 'bad guys' makes any sense anyway - what difference does it make? The 'good guys' get hurt in the process too.
