About taking sides in reviewing this movie, 23 February 2012
Author: L B

As a neutral viewer, let me first say about the movie's setting and theme, rallying to support or vote against the movie and all these 1/10 and 10/10 reviews.

So here are the facts:

- the movie's goal is "honor the women victims of war" and portray war horrors - it is said that it is not supposed to take sides - the plot takes place in Serb prison camp and all war criminals portrayed are exclusively Serbs

These three lines are enough to explain all the fuss about this movie in the media. It was a war - and anyone who is at least a bit more deep than to eat whatever media serves, knows what any war is really like. It is often said that it was a "brother-killing" war, and there is an especially influential political background story to this one:

http://www.balkanstudies.org/articles/understanding-balkan-wars

All 4 sides (UN is the 4th, doing mostly nothing) have to share their responsibility, like all sides have to in any war. I applaud the director's idea about telling the story of women victims of the war. But to do so completely one-sidedly, while saying it is supposed to "honor the victims of war" is very irresponsible and bound to receive the negative attention it has. Imagine if any Hollywood producer would create a movie about atrocities done to German soldiers by the Allies in WWII - not on the same scale, but same problem.

For some truly great films about this war (all sides can agree to that), see "No Man's Land" and "Pretty Village, Pretty Flame".

In my opinion, the message of the movie is severely damaged by shifting the focus of a lot of viewers to lack of neutrality and presence of heavy bias. If it has covered a couple of stories featuring women victims, and not a flimsy and unfocused love story covered with violence with no clear purpose, it could have been a very good movie. Like this, it is weakly executed, fails to deliver focus and strong clear message and is very irresponsible.
