A crisp, rigorously unsentimental director, Winterbottom was a good choice for this project.

A compelling but jumbled film that examines the line between journalistic detachment and passion.

Welcome to Sarajevo isn't just the story of an outsider's perspective of the conflict; it's a compelling examination of the role the media played in reporting and shaping the average person's views of the war.

Too often we sense that the actors are drifting and the story is at sea.

Messy and visceral, with an articulate, pointed anger that's recognizably British, "Welcome to Sarajevo" hits with an impact that's not diminished by the fact that Sarajevo's uneasy peace has held.

However closely they mirror the real experience of Mr. Nicholson and others, some of the shocks here are too sadly predictable.
