After various skirmishes, two wounded soldiers, one Bosnian and one Serb, confront each other in a trench in the no man's land between their lines. They wait for dark, trading insults and even finding some common ground; sometimes one has the gun, sometimes the other, sometimes both. Things get complicated when another wounded Bosnian comes to, but can't move because a bouncing mine is beneath him. The two men cooperate to wave white flags, their lines call the UN (whose high command tries not to help), an English reporter shows up, a French sergeant shows courage, and the three men in no man's land may or may not find a way to all get along.

The movie talks upon three soldiers,one Serbian and two Bosnian who are trapped in a trench amidst the contenders lines during Servia-Bosnis Herzegovina war in 1993 year.One Bosnian finds himself unlucky hooked to a bomb that in movement case can to blow up.
It's a denounce facing the war realized with dark humor.There's a keen critic to the role of United Nations ONU by means of UNPROFOR and ACNUR. The screenplay tackles issues about the horror war and morality and ethic but with notes of acute and sharp comedy developed in great sense of ductility and fairness.The story is narrated with sensitivity and intelligence.It's a fascinating warlike film described for a serious comic style.The picture obtained a well deserved Oscar winner for best foreign language.The film tries remain neutral but appear Radovan Karazkic's images ruling the Sarajevo siege. The motion picture takes part of the Servian war subgenre as:¨Welcome to Sarajevo¨or¨Before the Rain¨and numerous films. The principal actors although unknown , are excellent.The support cast is more known ,thus is Katrin Aldridge who unfortunately dead recently by a stroke,she interprets a impulsive journalist.Simon Callow as a United Nations colonel is equally magnificent. The picture is fine directed by debuting Danis Tanovic who also makes the screenplay and even the music. Rating:Above average .Well catching.
