Death in Sarajevo (2016)
Critic Reviews for Death in Sarajevo
Throwing together multiple characters in a single luxury hotel, this Altman-esque ensemble drama has lofty aims, but misses the target.
Polemical as it is, Death in Sarajevo is a hotel movie, one that fluidly entertains even as it educates.
An expertly modulated choral drama that is also one of the most clear-cut and boldly stated summations of Bosnia's paralyzing discord.
[Director Danis] Tanovic succeeds in moving away from the past conflict to look into the eyes of the dreaded present. [Full review in Spanish]
This tragicomedy asks how many times a continent can die and not draw any new conclusions from the experience.
We know that all the separate stories with their personal dramas and opposing agendas we'll eventually collide (that's what happens in this subgenre of drama) but it's still fascinating to watch them braid together and Tanovic does this artfully.
