★★★★ review by WashyBanjo on Letterboxd
Slow but a very unique film. Benicio Del Toro is becoming one of my favorite actors of all time. Some of the comedy didn't work for me but some of it worked really well and most of the time it was from Del Toro. This is one I feel required to have seen since I love war movies and it involves a war I knew almost nothing about. Some of the slow periods of this movie I spent reading the wikipedia article on the Bosnian war on my phone, some interesting stuff and a great setting for this type of movie.
★★★½ review by Bruno Viana on Letterboxd
This is a movie that mixes up a feel good movie with war. Somehow they get through with it! It has a collection of well build and acted characters that flow amidst the horror of war, with it's bureaucracies, unfairness, and day to day survival. In some point it gives to much attention to one relation between two characters (a little bit irrelevant I might say) which breaks a little bit of the flow. Tim Robbins is great, and like in The Brink he does great comedy. All the other are great too. In the end of the movie we get some redemption, and see although war f*** things up, life has it's way and everything just keeps going...
★★★★ review by Mario T on Letterboxd
His first movie that got an international release, spanish filmmaker Fernando León de Aranoa created a movie that came out of nowhere and completely caught me.
A pacing that's pretty flawless. Sometimes the (dark) comedy really is pleasant, but in a blink of an eye it could switch into a really serious tension and handles it really well. It never seems forced rather unexpected.
A great cast with leading man Benicio del Toro who continues his great run of good performances in 2015.
Also the plot seems really original, refreshing and somehow silly. A group of aid workers travel across a conflicted country just to get a rope; which sets the tone for the movie.
A great surprise hit.
