Well, some people have really come down hard on this movie, saying it's more of a documentary. So what? Although I haven't seen it since the year it was premiered, I do recall liking it. To me, what matters about a film is if it lives up to what I have come to expect, and this was the case. It's realistic stuff about the lousy war (Well, each and every one of them are lousy after all) that took place in Bosnia during most of the nineties. However, peace has not totally arrived there yet.
