Compelling War Drama
14 November 1999 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to catch this film at the Portland Film Center Film Festival. This is one of those films that I feel honored to have seen. It is so important, and so moving, and so very well done. It is apparent that the film maker put his heart and soul into this film. The movie examines the consequences and tragedy of the Bosnian-Serbian war, but be assured that there is great humanity and compassion and even humor in this movie as well. The best thing in this movie are the performances. I don't know how the director managed to evoke such incredible performances. They are among the best I've ever seen.
