In the heart of the problem...
6 November 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Anand Patwardhan is the most iconoclastic documentary film maker I have ever seen. Till now I have seen his 2 films & I should say that in his films he religiously make honest attempts to break all the establish norms in the society. War and Peace is no different. This is a film about the irony of war which exist in the shadow of peace.

There was nuclear attack on Hiroshima & Nagasaki, which USA reasoned as an attempt to end the war and establish peace but does war really ended ? I don't think so... Many years later two developing nation India & Pakistan conducted nuclear test and became nuclear power; again in the name of peace. (It was mainly to satisfy each-others false ego) Twin tower attack motivated America to bombard Afghanistan, further they destroyed Iraq again in the name of unattainable peace. Power fanatics all around the world are playing this ironical game of War and Peace.

This is a film about destruction or destructive nature which exist within the society. I am really amazed by the courage and passion of director to make films on issues which are important but generally ignored.

I will seriously recommended this film to all movie buffs however also note that there are couple of heart-trenching shots and images which may disturb you, however this should not be a reason to ignore this film.

Recommended.
