As hopeless as life can become, perhaps nothing is harder to bear than the false promise of something better. In these beautifully composed vignettes, a group of characters in contemporary Croatia struggle to see the light at the end of the post-war tunnel: A simpleton cares for a wounded bird in a war zone, a desperate junkie looks to her family, a once famous actor wanders through the night, an old man feels restored after meeting a young traveler and a former soldier is estranged from his family. The magnificent actors in this ensemble instill their characters with an enchanting vitality. Moments of Here may be difficult to watch, but it is even more difficult to look away.The winner of the Milan Film festival 2004.
