Remarkable movie, you just got to see this one

Author: natarajdance from United States
19 January 2005

It's exactly showing how things took place. After this horrible Bosnian war, and with all this new tragedies around the globe, we might be forgetting what took place in Bosnia. We (world), in the 90-is basically had a concentration camps there, in a heart of Europe, in a prime time of European community getting together. If you happen to be no Serbian, you easily end up in concentration camp, or you could just being killed. Similar to Ruanda situation. Movie is not the easiest thing to watch, but we got to inform our selves what is bad and what should we try to stop at all cost

Movie is based on a true story. It follows a young screenwriter ( Tarik Karaga ) who sends his own screenplay to a contest in France just before war broke out in Bosnia. Screenplay was based on his Father being taken to concentration camp during the second world war, and his best Serbian friend is saving his life. In a meantime war begins and young screenwriter is being taken to concentration camp (1992). Now few critics from France, are trying to save Tarik ( screenwriter ) trough United Nations, in a similar way like his Father was saved in his play. It might be the best movie I have ever seen. Movie is done in a very good way.At one point REM song "Losing my Religion" played in a background brought a tear in my eye.

Great, Great Movie.

Mr Dino Mustafic Bravo !

It is obvious that this film was made from very heart and memories of Director Dino Mustafic... It is a story about Love, War, Hate and ordinary peoples caught in Sarajevo"s Hell during the siege Great movie

a big effort, somewhat too sided (possible spoilers)

Author: leandros from Istanbul
10 March 2004

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Dino Mustafic has doubtlessly made a big effort to adapt the screenwriter Zlatko Topcic's autobiographical novel. Remake is a big production, obviously straight from the heart of the director. However, giving all the credit to his heart, I am unsure if he deliberately left out some goodness in the film. All of the "good friends" of the protagonist Tariq turn their back at him, eventually betraying him. Strangely, it makes one feel that either the original literature piece or the script, or knowing that the writer is the same person, both are somewhat sided, written in bitter agony (naturally) and (perhaps) cinematic revenge. I think this big movie would have received more international acclaim it deserved if it had left out some of its strong nationalistic approach.
