It'd been even better without the reporter.
It felt a bit like she only was there to make the movie relevant to white people or something, because her story line didn't really add anything.
Maybe it's because it never developed into anything interesting, or because her character just felt out of place (especially at the end). I don't know.
Apart from this, it's a very beautiful, and also very painful movie to watch.
The cinematography ranges from good to great, same goes for costume design and scenery.
This movie features (somewhat) graphic depictions of torture, sexual abuse, suicide and armed battle. Watch with caution.
