This is the Bosnian Muslim take on the siege of Sarajevo. Quieter than Welcome to Sarajevo (and a million miles from For Ever Mozart), it adopts a low key, humanist perspective which might be termed 'old fashioned', both in a pejorative and complimentary sense. A little like Kolya, it has an older man reluctantly adopting a couple of orphaned boys, one of them a deaf mute. There's a strong feeling for ordinary life in extraordinary circumstances (circumstances shared by the film-makers), which renders the occasional explosions of senseless horror all the more effective.
