Wonderful and powerful film
4 October 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wonderfully acted, beautifully filmed, and well written story. Very real depiction of village life in Bosnia, and the impacts of war that these people experienced only a short while ago. This film was very touching and didn't need to rely on huge action scenes - even in its simplest moments it was very powerful. The symbolism is also very interesting(the young boy's hair, the snow) and may take some contemplating to understand, but overall this was film wasn't trying to be complex or confusing like some films on this subject can be. The characters are wonderful and it was very touching to see their personal struggles with their loss, and their strength in carrying on with life. All actors were wonderful, especially the the main actress who played Alma. I hope to see more from this director. Highly recommended!
