Why doesn't Hollywood just give up?
6 April 2002 | by oaknetSee all my reviews

This film is excellent, both in the scale of its main story, and in the fine details. The place, the men, the women, and the light upon them are all overwhelming. The light on the women makes them more beautiful than Hollywood's best. The scenes of Paris and Sarjevo evidence of our creativity and destructiveness. Consider the moment when two women meet on the landing of a block of flats. One speaks only French, the other Bosnian - yet they fully understand each other. It is one of those moments that elevates cinema to the world of literature.
