Storyline

Resolution 819: Adopted by the Security Council at its 3199th meeting on April 16th, 1993. Resolution 819 tells the compelling story of a young investigator sent to Bosnia in 1995 to investigate the disappearance of 8,000 men in Srebrenica and eventually bring the perpetrators of the massacre to justice at the International Criminal Court. Benoît Magimel stars as Jacques Calvez, a man of integrity who refuses to let politicians, mobsters or bureaucrats stand in his way. He receives valuable help in his quest from Lherbier (Hippolyte Girardot), a French secret service agent, and above all from beautiful forensic anthropologist Clara Gorska (Karolina Gruszka) Written by Anonymous

one side of coin
5 March 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

touching. powerful. remember of a massacre. drawing of its roots. and homage to Srebenica victims. in same measure, half truth. the Manichean colors rules. bad - good and Sisiphic work of UN. Magimel in a intense role , music - gorgeous but after waves of emotion, images, memories about that period-war-tragedy, it is born the feeling than story is more profound. Muslims was victims and murders are deep stain on Serbian conscience. but the wolf has not ethnic identity. abuses are work of Croatians, Albanian, Serbs or NATO in 1999. and, behind Mladic nationalism is more than ideology or frustration. so, the error of film is desire to be more than testimony. analysis of sin, it is one side of a a coin. because subject are people, out of national language or citizenship. because Balkans are, in many measure, a swamp for every Occidental theory. but, like movies about Shoah, Resolution 819 is a necessary film. for memory. for soul. and for define evil not like accident but hidden demon.
