Few movies has ever done war with such a sense for gallows humor as this one. It must be one of the darkest comedies ever seen as two opposing soldiers try to get over their differences by defusing a mine that a third one has fallen unto. It is bleak from the get-go and United Nations gets a big middle finger too at the end as they try to cover up their own mistakes.
This film is interested in the big picture of the war. The way we fight wars today, and the role of the UN in these type of conflicts. Everyone is awful. The UN has become a bureaucracy that is more interested in how they look on TV, rather than actually helping. It's a powerful movie that doesn't take its subject lightly. Branko Djuric is quite good in this film.
This is a satire of Director Danis Tanvovic on the context of Bosnia Herzegovina war. Everyone is trying to take advantage of this situation when the peoples of these countries are in a minefield of problems.
