  1. Ingrid Aldama's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    Difficult to stomach, but very well made. A powerful film.

  2. Francisca's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

  3. tsamaroden's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    A harshly realistic film about the terrors a group of women, with Samira (Natasha Petrovic) as our guide, endures during the Bosnian war. A tough watch, but powerful and necessary and not skimping on complexities either. One of those great films I only want to see once.

  4. EdieEmm's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    Today, as I was watching this film, the ICC - in a landmark ruling - finally recognized rape as a war crime - an acknowledgement that gendered sexual violence is not simply a by-product of conflict but a weapon of war. Bit by bit, with these films, these rulings, the reality of countless women is given voice. An important film, well made, sufficiently complex and unflinching. Strong performance by Natasha Petrovic.

  5. msmichel's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    An astounding and moving performance by Natasha Petrovic anchors this fine film looking at the horrors perpetrated on women during the Bosnian war. Director Wilson based the film on real stories recorded during the Hague tribunal following the war and the authenticity and emotional truth stand out. Also of note is the turn by Fedja Stukan as the captain who feels he is also doing what it takes to survive. Harrowing.

  6. George B's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    Tough. But I like tough.

  7. zi's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    There's so much concentrated anger in that part of the world. My father is from there, and as a child he would whip me with such severity that I bled on occasion. I initially watched this with "war film" expectations but ended up just thinking "Yup, that's them." These films all fall short because you simply cannot adequately relate the horrors of those situations on a screen, but we must try. Well done.

  8. Jadis's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    devastating. finally a solid feminist perspective on these atrocities. more of this genre plz, Mubi!

  9. Caitlin's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    Addresses the use of rape in times of war with sensitivity. This is a film about one girl's struggle to survive brutal and dehumanizing conditions while held in a camp during the Bosnian war in the 1990s. Juanita Wilson is a director to watch. It's unfortunate she hasn't released a feature film since this one. I look forward to the films she will, hopefully, make in the future.

  10. Hockley Cinema's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    A stunning and stark drama, vividly and sensitively carved out by director Wilson. With a jaw-dropping performance by Natasa Petrovic whose every twitch and glance becomes the emotional narrative. A must-see.... even for the squeamish !

  11. El Mau's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    -En el mundo no hay más que ruina y desolación- podemos leer en un cuento de Las mil y una noches... que poco hemos cambiado en más de 1,500 años... Hermosa y terrible pelicula...

  12. Zepo's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    Grandiosa reseña de una guerra de exterminio cruenta y sangrienta pero poco exhibida. Magnifica

  13. Venus Rey Jr's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    Guerra de los Balcanes: limpieza étnica, campos de concentración, genocidio, violaciones sistemáticas. Dilema moral: ¿debo abortar? Es fácil oponerse al aborto desde la comodidad de la academia, el púlpito o un Starbucks; pero ante la brutalidad que sufre la protagonista, uno no debería juzgar tan dogmáticamente. Son muchas las películas sobre la guerra en los Balcanes. Esta es, sin duda, una muy buena. @VenusReyJr

  14. G. Elósegui's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    Mujeres que libran la guerra en el territorio del propio cuerpo. Magnífica dirección, no se necesita ver la sangre y el horror de las ejecuciones y los bombardeos, el terror está en el sobresalto cada vez que se abre la puerta. Solo una mujer podría entender esos gestos, esos silencios y trasladarlos a la pantalla con la precisión de una bala, apuntando en el centro del patriarcado que toma a las mujeres como botín.

  15. Lucii Lugo's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    Una historia desgarradora que por desgracia se basa en hechos reales. Retrata el horror y la deshumanización que viven las mujeres en tiempos de guerra. Llena de silencios envueltos de incertidumbre y miedo. Expone de manera brillante lo que es ser humano y vivir, no sólo sobrevivir. Una brillante actuación de la protagonista, excelente música y una narrativa que parece fluir tal como un documental; en tiempo real.

  16. V Daniel López's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    Una historia simple y que ya se nos ha contado muchas veces. A pesar de ello, vale la pena la dirección de cámaras y la música. La actuación de ella, también estupenda.

  17. Victor Reyes's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

  18. Ricardo Corona M's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    Excelente el trabajo de la actriz principal que por medio de su silencio en distintas escenas nos logra transmitir la gama de emociones que siente en la situación en la que se encontrara.

    Bien descrita toda la brutalidad y crueldad de la guerra en Bosnia, exponiendo el terror que vivieron muchas mujeres

  23. timits's rating of the film As If I Am Not There

    Sad, shocking; no need for translation; must be seen, to prevent recurrence at any place

  24. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film As If I Am Not There
