(es) wrote: "Sous les Bombes" is an involving and informative pseudo-documentary-drama that takes us on a halting journey through war-torn Lebanon. While the tragedies that passers-by have experienced strike us right off the bat, Zeina's story is revealed to us piece-by-piece, much like her growing affinity with her cab driver. The film presents some interesting themes, like innocence and nostalgia (interestingly reminiscent of Milan Kundera's "Ignorance"), and deals with their role in wartime and post-war environments. One of the most intriguing aspects of the film is the reality of the footage, and the non-fictional accounts interspersed with the actors' dialogue. While most likely all of it is very true-to-life, it's hard to distinguish between the scripted and the not. The two actors are extremely compelling.
(nl) wrote: En skarp film med mange budskaber om USA. Bryce Dallas Howard, Danny Glover og Isaach De Bankol gr det super, og trdn bliver fulgt meget godt fra 'Dogville'. Samtidig har filmen en mere skarp slutning end sin forgnger. Absolut en sevrdig og mindevrdig film.
(us) wrote: I watched this film when I was in Hong Kong a LONG TIME AGO. It has my favourite actress in it: Fujiwara Norika. It also somehow combines three languages into one film. A well choreographed action film with a plot that actually works and cute humour.
(kr) wrote: Mad. Very interesting though
(br) wrote: A charming film. Thom Fitzgerald needs to re-visit us again soon me thinks. A Canadian classic.

(ag) wrote: Ups the action and visuals this time to a more satisfying degree, yet the story is thinner. It serves more as a pay off to it's more expository predecessor. Kicks ass, but doesn't spin the mythical yarn quite as well.
