The Weight of Chains is a Canadian documentary film that takes a critical look at the role that the US, NATO and the EU played in the tragic breakup of a once peaceful and prosperous European state - Yugoslavia. The film, bursting with rare stock footage never before seen by Western audiences, is a creative first-hand look at why the West intervened in the Yugoslav conflict, with an impressive roster of interviews with academics, diplomats, media personalities and ordinary citizens of the former Yugoslav republics. This film also presents positive stories from the Yugoslav wars - people helping each other regardless of their ethnic background, stories of bravery and self-sacrifice.Written by
Are you for real? Gimmie a Break: A dramatic copy of Michael Moore, with an annoying voice!
Not sure why this movie has high ratings despite of negative comments; I am giving it a 1 because the narrator's voice is too obnoxious and his snarky attitude is the least bit flattering to even attempt to sit through a "serious" documentary for two and a half hours. Although it deemed to have good points I was interested in hearing, such as on economy and the overall involvement from the west, the movie is blatantly biased. Even though his overall "thesis" was to present the fall of Yugoslavia, he clearly has his topics mixed up when he switches gears and ultimately tried to "debunk" the Serbian involvement and proclaim innocence in the wars. Thank you Malagurski for teaching us the things we should have known (sarcasm implied), should have stuck to economy and not downplayed the Chetnik atrocities during the war!
