What a Horrifying Bombing Scene
19 October 2017 | by ini_ynti-22457See all my reviews

This movie is based on an autobiography of Aureliano Amadei. He has a deep love for filmmaking. That's why he can't refuse an offer to be an assistant director, even when the movie will be made in Iraq. It's a big stepping stone for him. But when he got there, he finally finds out that he was actually "deceived" and his decision leads him to a grievous reality.

I never really like watching movie about war. I love history, but every time I watch a movie war related, it's more often than not to include bombing and shooting with a great damage to the human body, in this case soldiers or civilians. It's really painful to see. You can see blood, flesh and bone and sometimes it makes me wanna puke and begin to question myself again, why war?

This movie really shows that horror I really fear to watch. And it was so genuine. The scene was taken from Amadei's still rolling camera, so it feels so real. Like I was really there with them. I wanted to skip this part but I might lose something important, so I kept watching.

Besides its frightening bombing scene, it deals with a bittersweet romance between Amadei, his best friend and his real boyfriend. The uniqueness of his parents and their beautiful relationship also adds solace to this movie. But the truth that there will always be someone who tries to be in the "spotlight" after this terrifying attack is so odious.
