Goofs

Almost all uniforms, insignia, military equipment, weapons and vehicles of the Bosnian Serb Army shown in the movie, are completely inaccurate and never seen in the war in the former Yugoslavia. Whilst some wardrobe pieces (e.g. ranks and insignia) are fully imaginary items, most other military props are obviously of non-local origin (mostly came from former Soviet Block armies, notably Hungary, where most of the filming took place). Practically all of the shown 'Bosnian Serb' distinctive sleeve insignia, are actually from the surplus of The Federal Republic of Yugoslavia Army and were, as such, never worn by Serbs in the Bosnian War.

There should be no movies about wars
14 April 2012 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

There is no movie that can represent the war, because it is something that includes whole nations, and each nation has thousands of persons participating in it. And each person has her own painful story to tell. Especially, here in Balkan.

No one, who isn't from Balkan can't understand what is going on here, it's even hard for us. We are just cursed to live in this part of the world, which has always been major target for powerful people or countries to invade. In this war, someone had used the fact that in small country live three nations with different religion and tough history between them. Media, led by someone, had a major influence in it. This movie proves that. It has only opened old wounds, and it just doesn't let us to forget and to live our lives.

The reason why Serbs don't like this movie is this: during this almost 20 years since the war was over, no one remembers the Serbian victims, no one mentions raped and killed Serbian women and children, who did nothing to deserve that. Everybody speaks about those Serbian villains, and yes, I'm ashamed of what they did, like every normal person should be. But, everybody should understand that Croats, Serbs and Muslims had their victims and their villains. Common people are victims, those who were trapped by this war, those who lost their families and their homes, those who didn't want war at all, and most of us are like that, whether we are Serbs, Croats or Muslims. We all should blame individuals who did crimes and who make us to hate each other, who did nothing wrong. We all should be above this, for our better future and we all should repress every speech of hate.

When you watch this movie or any other war movie, keep it on mind that it is just a movie, and that you can't understand any kind of war based on books, stories, documentary or "wanna be" profitable movie, you have to live it and even after that you have to be objective. Don't forget, the winners write history.
