Sad Contrasting Events
28 April 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a film that tells us what can take place in a 10 minute period. It focuses on a man, going to a ten minute photo shop. While he waits, we cut to the streets of Sarajevo where a boy tries to get water for his family. There are snipers in the area and shelling is taking place. The results can be devastating. Men form sandbag bunkers, rifles at their sides, as the boy rushes by. I had forgotten what took place back then. This is poignant and horrifying.
