  1. Jason's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    Naturally, a mixed bag is avowedly to be mixed, and what is, in cinematographic terms, more of a mixed bag than an omnibus film? Yes. Some of theses fragments are more equal than others, and it could hardly be said to start on promising terms. Happily we have four consecutive triumphs from Angela Schanelec, Cristi Puiu, Jean-Luc Godard, and Sergei Loznitsa. Plus it is all capped off very sweetly by Ursula Meier.

  2. humberto1988's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    Fue ver una situación reconocible para mí... la exigencia de sobre-vivir es latente, de enfrentar el cambio, pero en realidad es la anulación de la sensibilidad es lo que a diario se exige. Un gran documental.

  3. DrFirestone's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    While I appreciate handling the topic, I have to say this feature lacks both focus and impact. Surprisingly dull, especially considering the directors involved. The episodes don't seem to communicate, acknowledge each other - the whole experience seems fragmented, random, sometimes repeating the same idea. Maybe it was intended to reflect the shattered reality of Sarajevo, representing fragments of lost memories...

  4. Jonathan Pr's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

  5. captainfez's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    Surprisingly meh, given the directors involved.

  6. dionysus67's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    Tight in its brooding tone documentary on Sarajevo's tormented history. As an icon of Balkan turmoil, the city becomes a site of trauma and reconciliation. The directors converge in their melancholic and aporetic gaze on the war and raise thorny issues. The segments from Godard, Loznitsa, Begic, Di Costanzo and Puiu are excellent and the animator provides an apt and evocative bridge between each segment.

  7. Juan's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    Una visión artística y humana de la guerra.

  8. Paul Rot's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    It’s better than nothing. Better than oblivion. Better than silence.

  9. cin·aes·the·tic's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

  10. Superfrog's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    Felt pretentious, did not manage to get into a second sitting to finish it,

  11. Diderot's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    Aside from the Godard and Puiu, pretty negligible. But the Godard especially is very worth watching.

  12. mis marg's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    It tells at least a bit about a place I could not imagine. What of the mines now and being able to wander the countryside, and the displaced, and those that remain? Always more work to be done .

  13. camezin's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    JLG's bit is brilliant (comme d'habitude) though recycled from previous shorts on the subject; Puiu (equally inspired) is bitterly funny and devastatingly scathing; Aida Begić, Le Besco and Meier ~ touching corny trifles; Schanelec - somewhat interesting solely on a conceptual level; le reste = nada; so overall (including v. on-the-nose animated interludes) rather insipid, facile and disappointing(ly pedestrian)

  14. Fab S's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    4.5 stars The problem is that those not knowledgable will find it utterly boring. eg. the short movie about G. Princip speech translated in German is a parallel between the youngs in 1918 and the young taking german class to seek a better future in Germany/Austria. Same despair, different method As i lived in Sarajevo, i can say this documentary made the round of the topic but elude the question of the after...

  15. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    A look at both Sarajevo in the past and the present, and also the people who view it as home, for better or worse, this is an interesting anthology film that, like many anthologies, doesn't always work. But the good stuff just manages to outweigh the bad.

  16. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    If not for the segments by Godard and Puiu, this would be an otherwise forgettable anthology film.

  17. Ralph Melcher's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    Our memories and reflections on tragedy and war are as unique and diverse as the styles of these directors, arranged in a deliberate sequence taking us from pure circumstance through personal agony and struggle toward an effort to overcome the ashes and reach for some hope. My favorite piece was ‘Little Boy’ as it offers transcendence through innocence. The animations are effective as the bridges of the title.

  18. Juan Javier's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    Con altibajos, sobretodo hacia el final

    An inspired portrait of a city and a testament to human resilience.

  22. Mihai Cristea's rating of the film The Bridges of Sarajevo

    There should be a rule: do not rate an omnibus as a whole, but each piece separately. Kamen Kalev - 2/5 Vladimir Perisic - 1/5 Leonardo di Costanzo - 2/5 (DOP Luca Bigazzi!) Angela Schanelec - 1/5 Cristi Puiu - 3/5 Jean-Luc Godard - 3.5/5 Sergei Loznitsa - 2/5 Aida Begic - 3.5/5 Marc Recha -3.5/5 Teresa Villaverd - 1/5 Vincenzo Marra - 3/5 Isild Le Besco - 4/5 Ursula Meier - 2/5 (general rating doesn't mean anything)
