Harrison's Flowers (2002)
Critic Consensus: Though it presents the war in shockingly gritty, realistic terms, Harrison's Flowers uses such scenes as background for a trite love story.
A woman travels to war-torn Yugoslavia to find her husband, a photojournalist for 'Newsweek,' who was to make this his last assignment but has been reported dead by the wire service.

Critic Reviews for Harrison's Flowers
Provides powerful drama thanks to its trenchant core story and harrowing re-creation of the brutal chaos of war.
The movie too often works against itself, pitting an increasingly implausible story with Chouraqui's hard-core realism.
The film presents an intense dose of reality -- too intense for some, maybe -- and it leaves us with a bitter aftertaste.
Audience Reviews for Harrison's Flowers
A worth subject but ultimately dull. Andie MacDowell is out of her depth.
"Harrison's Flowers", with a story plot basically revolving around the early 1990s Yugoslavian war and the search of a photojournalist lost in its midst by his wife, delivers a sufficiently grasping performance. All this despite the cast being not so famous.
Very good movie. Good story and very good acting by Adrien, Andie and Brendan. Can be disturbing at times and has some very graphic scenes, but well worth seeing. Makes you have a better appreciation for those that risk their life to capture photos of countries that are at war!
