Top Critic

These stories are moving, but what really distinguishes the film is the sense of an entire city giving in to self-immolation.

An emotional character study of a group of heroic, yet very human, individuals.

Burn captures the danger (and, yes, excitement) of putting out blazes, as well as the futility of dousing flames in a city rife with arson-and the struggles to maintain adequate funding in a wrecked economy that hits the public sector hardest.
