With an interval of fifty years in between (1943-1993), the film brings the experience of the World War II and the Siege of Sarajevo during the Bosnian War. Remake tells two tragic stories in one. Before the onset of war in Bosnia, young writer Tarik sent a screenplay to a literary competition in France (the story of his father Ahmed, who experienced the outbreak of the World War II in Sarajevo). Later, he is captured by the Serbian Army and is subjected to the cruel conditions of a labour camp. With the help of the UN, he manages to get out of the besieged city and goes to Paris because a famous French film producer is interested in his script. Remake is however more than a war film. It is also a coming-of-age drama, with scenes in which Ahmed and Tarik go out with their friends, have fun, fall in love. Written by John Stevenson

One of the best war movies I have ever watched!
8 April 2017 | by brooks46See all my reviews

One of the best war movies I have ever watched. Amazing and brilliant film. Incredible autobiographical story of screenwriter Zlatko Topčić. The film sends a strong message: History repeats itself. This movie can be compared with films like Schindler's List or Life Is Beautiful. Absolutely brilliant.
