He looks at the time and smokes a cigarette. The scene then changes to a different country in Sarajevo, Bosnia. A boy named Memo leads an ordinary life; but, his country is in the midst of a war. Memo's father comes home, and Memo leaves for water and bread for the family. He encounters some friends and they ask if he wants to play but he kindly declines. He then meets up with some soldiers and tries to get their guns but later settles for 2 cigarettes to buy a loaf of bread for them. Just when the bread truck appears the bombings occurs; but, Memo needs food and water so he fills up the jug until the last second. Memo runs for shelter, but wants to see his family, so he ...

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.
