Bringing back the memories ...
19 February 2000 | by emircoSee all my reviews

Well, I just finished watching the movie and I'm feeling pretty down. You see, I've spent the whole war in Sarajevo and I had the good luck needed to survive through the whole thing. This brings us to the fact that I'm not so objective since I'm emotionally involved in this matter. The war ended four years ago but this movie made me feel like it was still going on. I could not sit calmly while I was watching it. It was so disturbingly realistic that the whole time I was watching it I could not choose between crying and laughing and at the end I caught myself sitting and staring at a non-existing dot on the wall. I can tell you one thing: If this film was intended to send the message of peace and tolerance it failed. Once again it filled me with emotions of pain and hate that I was trying to leave behind. Yet, it does not make it less significant. I just noticed that my whole comment was about my emotions and not about the movie so I world like to state that this is a great film with good cast but for a second I wished that I hadn't seen it in the first place. I hope that people from outside of Bosnia will see it and will not accept it as a piece of fiction; they should be aware of the fact that these things still really happen at the and of 20th century. Shameful.
