This is a flawed, but very memorable movie worth 90 minutes of anybody's time.
It covers big topics - war, racial conflict, child abduction - but most important of all it is about hope and the salvation of one human being by another.
Special mention must be made of the child actor in the co-star role. He is one of the best I've ever seen. His Polish nationality means it is unlikely we'll get to see him in many more films so all the more reason to enjoy this one.

There have been very few films covering the "war" in Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia. Perhaps it's as well as Mankind stooped to new lows here.

This wonderful film covers one moment in the fighting in Bosnia. The story of a man who goes searching for a boy in the war torn country with a view to spiriting him out of the country. For money.

The two man actors are very good indeed. The boy plays a most convincing role, one I would not expect capable of for a boy of his tender years.

It is a chilling story especially as the true point of it all comes out toward the end.

The direction and sets are of a high standard too. A great film indeed.

good acting good scenery good setting a roller coaster of emotional highs and lows - thats the superficial stuff out the way -

thank god it wasnt made by hollywood or it would have been so sweetly sick

the film is set in a war torn society dealing with the greed and corruption associated, money talks and life is cheap, how bad can turn to good, and the developing relationship of two very different characters at opposite ends of a spectrum

deffinately reccomended for a good evenings viewing - BUT im not going to tell you how it ends so you wont know if you will be horrified or elated after watching

"Bob Hoskins is not the cheeky chappie he seems. In fact, he is the rudest, most disagreeable person I've interviewed. He may preach that "it's good to talk" in those irritating BT adverts, but chattiness - or indeed, social graces of any kind - are not in evidence during our encounter. ..I am surprised by this, because friends who know him claim that he is "charming", "funny", a "darling" in private. Yet in a way, his bad temper is a relief. Hoskins is well known for simply recycling the same anecdotes. Today, he is so cross that his remarks are much more revealing; I would never have guessed he was so nasty"

So said the Murdoch hack journalist Eleanor Mills in her Sunday Times interview column in December 1999. Since then of course she has risen up the greasy Murdoch pole and of course, we all know about that corporation now and its penchant for gutter journalism and phone hacking, the Sunday Times not being aloof from the sort of widespread illegalities its sister paper The News of the World indulged in and which has seen several criminal prosecutions and sentencing.

Since then of course our dear Bob Hoskins has gone to heaven, this year in fact, prematurely. Always a man with a keen sense of social conscience and how his work could and did relate to society as a whole. I remember him at the start of his career in "Cato Street", a play by the equally socially conscious and great actor, Robert Shaw, alongside Vanessa Redgrave at London's Young Vic in the 1970s. A small but bullish figure, he played the pivotal role of the traitor, the double agent - the man, as Nixon described of Hiss the Cold War spy he nailed in the 1950s, - who knows only eternal night. It was a telling performance.

This is a movie about the other aspects of war, and would not look out of place alongside of 'Soldier Blue' 'Welcome Home' or the TV series 'Anzacs'. Sharky (Bob Hoskins) poses as a Unicef worker in war-torn Bosnia, as a cover for his illegal activities. He convinces Vlado (Sergiusz Zymelka), a nine- year old bosnian orphan that he is there to take him to a better life abroad. This is a powerful story about the forgotten victims of war, and about the need to care.

Really don't understand what happened here.
I usually love this kind of movies, touching international conflicts.
I love Bob Hoskins, I think he is a superb actor (especially in Egoyan's "Felicia's Journey").

But to me it looked like a bad, bad film. Very bad acting, very bad directing, simplistic story. My worst DVD acquisition in years, sorry.

So I certainly wouldn't recommend it.
If you wanna see something about this conflict, rather try Danis Tanović 's "No man's Land", or revert to Kusturica or even Winterbotom.
