I enjoyed it
7 October 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A Spanish film about the Balkan Way and atrocities.

The cast is led by a several Hollywood notables. Decent acting and script. Good pace and cinematography. The movie allows a rare look into the terrible atrocities of civilians terrorizing their neighbors.

As the aid workers try to extricate a body from a well. They are confounded by local apathy and bureaucracy. We do get a look through their eyes as they face jittery militia, armed kids and constant fear of mines and bobby traps.

Faced with daily danger and horrors, some of them develop a cynic sense of humor. They befriend a local boy and we get to see the tragedy faced by the orphans of a civil war.

The feel good ending came as a welcome surprise. Kudos to the director and book author.

I enjoyed it despite the difficult subject matter.
