Near the start when B and Sophie are driving along the cliff, the aerial shot shows the cliff to be on the left of the road. Then a shot from inside the car shows trees in the background where the cliff was. The when they stop in front of the dead cow, the cliff is on the right side. See more »
"A Perfect Day" brings us back in 1995 and offers an interesting point of view to the last days of the Bosnian war.
The movie reveals a day of an international team of aid workers. It is a drama with a pinch of black humor. The movie shows the horror of the war, the pain of the local people and alludes the cruelty of religious intolerance. Most importantly it reminds the imperfection of the society and the black spot from the European history that should never be forgotten.
More than 20 years later, although I am also living on the Balkans, I still cannot figure out why this war started. A total madness that led to some many casualties and losses for everyone involved...
The music is great and so is the cast of "A Perfect Day". I always enjoy watching actors like Benicio Del Toro and Tim Robbins. Mélanie Thierry, Fedja Stukan and the young boy Eldar Residovic also played well. Olga Kurylenko, who you may remember as a Bond girl, performed excellently. Btw it is a bit sad that no matter what she does the "Bond" label will always be with her.
