I bought this around a year ago, having tried to get it from retail shops in the UK, but no one had heard of it. I began watching it, and stopped at the first scene of a young woman, being pulled from the group and raped in front of the others. I really couldn't stomach it. Anyway, I decided the other night that I'd try again, knowing this time what to expect, and I'm glad I did.

It's a heartbreaking story, not the fictional storyline, which is good, but the realistic portrayal of the Bosnian war, and the attrocities which took place...so much for the United Nations, and a post WW2 pledge never to allow such genocide to happen again. To see how these people were treated, (the excellent 'Warriors' is also worth watching) no different to the Nazi's treatment of the Jews, Roma, homosexuals, mentally and physically disabled etc. I don't know all the politics involved regarding the failure to intervene, but it's unbelievable that this was allowed to happen just 20 years ago, and whilst the UN were there, fully armed, they could do nothing but 'monitor' the situation, and allow the killing to continue. I've since referred to the UN as the Useless Nations!

If you can stomach the scenes of violation, and humiliation, then this is an excellent film, and one which people really ought to see, because unfortunately, it will undoubtedly happen again, indeed happens regularly in several African countries!

Angelina Jolie proves she is a as good a Director as she is Actor.

The content of this movie is sometimes hard to watch but not glorified in any way. I had little idea of the reasons behind the Serbian war with the Croatia or interest I guess, watching this has bought the reality of it close to home, it could happen in any again modern day society. Christians V Moslems , another war that divided a nation and killed so many.

The main theme is of course the heartfelt cause of Ms Jolie and many millions of women around the world , rape as a weapon of war / torture, this film shows it in all that is cruel and degrading .

I've lent the film to friends, we've all agreed its an excellent, thought provoking movie.

Cannot say I loved it because this sort of film should not be loved because of it theme. Well acted. Thought provoking and made me look up the historical content. Wanted to find out more.

Well acted and shows the horrors of that war. Bought with 'As If I Am Not There' that I think is the better of the 2 films about the treatment of civilians in that war.

A gruelling reminder of the horror of the Yugoslav civil war and its impact on the civilian population.

Good film spoiled by large subtitles in German. Had I known this I wouldn't have bought it. The film looked as if would have been very good (without the subtitles)
