Movie Info

This highly intellectual European documentary examines the benefits and moral basis for war reporting in the 20th century. It is done in two separate films that are part of a three-part project. The acclaimed documentarian Max Ophüls is featured in both films. Included is archival footage, movie clips, interviews, and the reminiscence of Ophüls as he depicts the attempts of journalists to find the truth about the various 20th century wars. The truth is often very difficult to find. Most of the documentaries focus upon the current war in Sarajevo. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

As penetrating as it is far-ranging.

Working on his usual vast canvas, Mr. Ophuls constructs another brave, enveloping inquiry into a compelling subject, reveling in the investigative process as he presents it imaginatively on screen.

Aug 7, 2005 | Rating: 4.5/5

Ophuls's scattershot approach is consistently engrossing, though I had a difficult time pinpointing the garrulous movie's focus (maybe you're not intended to pinpoint anything with 226 minutes to work with).

A great film, long overdue here in the U.S., because it speaks so eloquently about war and how much news coverage can affect the conflicts, the cultures, and even history itself.

A landmark achievement from Marcel Ophuls.
