Painful post-war reality
6 August 2001 | by (Bosnia and Herzegovina) – See all my reviews

Made by a Bosnian who lives in Canada, this film shows the painful post-war reality that follows Bosnian people like a heavy shadow wherever they move. It deals with accidental encounter of two Bosnians of different nationalities - the one who had tasted the bitter taste of war and the other who moved to Canada much before the war in Bosnia started. Both differences and similarities between them (and their families) are shown marvelously, with almost perfect sensibility and understanding. The emotional tension is sometimes extremely high, almost breathtaking. The actors had done their job excellently, especially Tony Nardi, Asja Pavlovic and Timothy Webber - but the whole actors' team was highly above average. Good example for Gerrardo Herero that a good actor does not necessarily have to speak Bosnian to play a role of a Bosnian!
