We just saw "Twice Born", and I would have to say it's one of the best movies I've ever seen. I shared an office with a Croatian during the Yugoslavian war, so I had a good idea what kind of details this "love story" would have... but the mix of history, great performances, and an arresting plot, brought home the reality of what war means to civilians caught up in it.
I could nitpick - there were a few things about the movie that I did not understand... but there is no doubt that the movie hit me.... hard.
Don't expect to come out of the movie feeling happy...
I just downloaded the book that the movie was adapted from to my Kindle this morning. I want to know more about the characters.
