Excellent realistic film, a bit TV like though
26 May 2004 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

An excellent and very realistic film, based on Aralica's book (based on survivors' experiences) and on a true event at the end of WW2.

Drammatic, but true. A piece of Croatian history, which was kept hidden for many years, and it is the proof of non-respect of international war conventions by the Allies. (some say that there is no/little evidence regarding this event, which is untrue, as I myself have done research for my undergraduate thesis on this matter - the documents are well hidden, and difficult to find...)

The main characters are a young couple, and what happens around them are true events. Some scenes are quite explicit, but as in each conflict those who are the "winners" are not always just and correct. The only lack of this film is that it seems more a TV film than a film made for the cinema. Otherwise, an excellent film which would need a bit more of publicity - as this event is still a delicate matter even after 50 years and it seems as an argument better not spoken about.
