Critic Reviews for Storm (Sturm)
Storm is harrowing, provocative and deeply probing yet quite involving.
A political thriller with real-world resonance.
In this taut drama about the trial of a Bosnian Serb general from German director and co-writer Hans Christian Schmid, we see how justice can be subverted by interests as banal as international bureaucracy, despite the best intentions...
It may sound like a simple lawyer-fights-for-righteousness tale, but this ostensible thriller is really an examination of two courageous female protagonists, both of whom find defeat at the intersection of the personal and the political.
The writing by director Hans-Christian Schmid and Bernd Lange is more stilted and righteous than even the U.N. environs, with its humanity-embracing procedural-speak, calls for.
Audience Reviews for Storm (Sturm)
Good drama! Not terribly fast moving, but I tend to like that sometimes if the story is intriguing enough. The acting was very, very good. The storyline was very interesting. A lady prosecutor is hellbent on making a war criminal pay for his crimes. A witness is determined to make this same war criminal pay for the horrible things that he was responsible for by helping the prosecutor bring him to justice. All was well played out. I enjoyed it.
