Goofs

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 »

I enjoyed it
7 October 2015 | by jim9tanSee all my reviews

A Spanish film about the Balkan Way and atrocities.

The cast is led by a several Hollywood notables. Decent acting and script. Good pace and cinematography. The movie allows a rare look into the terrible atrocities of civilians terrorizing their neighbors.

As the aid workers try to extricate a body from a well. They are confounded by local apathy and bureaucracy. We do get a look through their eyes as they face jittery militia, armed kids and constant fear of mines and bobby traps.

Faced with daily danger and horrors, some of them develop a cynic sense of humor. They befriend a local boy and we get to see the tragedy faced by the orphans of a civil war.

The feel good ending came as a welcome surprise. Kudos to the director and book author.

I enjoyed it despite the difficult subject matter.
