Extremely one sided and very anti-Serb,
This review is from: Welcome To Sarajevo [DVD] (DVD)
First I feel I need to begin by pointing out that I am not Serbian or have any Serbian relatives and nor am I Orthodox in my religious views I am an atheist. I sat and watched this last night thinking that I was going to get a movie that was going to be informative and very acurate considering it is based on a book written by the former ITN journalist Michael Nicholson on his experience covering the civil war in Bosnia. Oh no because how it appeared to me all we got is about 100 minutes of anti-Serbian propaganda. Now please don't misunderstand me war is very cruel, and mostly an unnecessary course of action to take but this so-called 'based on real events' movie made out that it was only Bosnian Serbs who did the shelling of towns and cities and kiiling of citizens which as anyone with an ounce of sense will know is not true. I just feel that this film is unbelievably biased against the Bosnian Serbs and for this reason ruined the film for me. In war there are no winners or losers only victims but this film is unable to portray that fact.

You seem to have completely missed the point of the film. It's about the siege of Sarajevo not the wider Balkan war. It was the Bosnian Serbs who besieged Sarajevo!
