Movie Info

Usama Alshaibi's documentary Nice Bombs: A Journey Back to Iraq follows the director as he visits his homeland for the first time in nearly a quarter century. He discusses how the country has changed since his childhood, and shows how the members of his family display their ease around the explosions that happen near their home on a regular basis. Their calm reaction to one of these incidents provides the film with its title.


Critic Reviews for Nice Bombs

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (6)

Nice Bombs feels as sad and directionless as the country it documents.

July 27, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The film suffers from a lack of timeliness.

July 27, 2007

Disarmingly casual.

July 14, 2007 | Full Review…

Yet another well-meaning but meandering doc exploring life (and death) during wartime.

Distance tends to simplify our view of anything, and this video humanizes the situation on the ground mostly by complicating it...

August 12, 2006 | Full Review…

A surprisingly warm first-person video diary, blending a series of reunions with relatives and footage of the bazaars, streets, homes and everyday perils of life in post-Saddam, mid-occupation and mid-chaos Iraq.
