Skies, Satellites

MOVIE:  Skies, Satellites

NUTSHELL:  Futility of war mood piece about a man who finds himself with amnesia amid the Bosnian war.

GOOD THINGS:  Beautiful looking and compelling at the start

BAD THINGS:  Eventually the Memento-y suspense wears off and it turns into a guy wandering around like Le Petit Prince.

FEATURES:  Filip Nola, Filip Sovagovic, Barbara Nola, Rene Bitorajac, Leon Lucev

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  By the time the rape scene comes along we are already on the “war is futile” bandwagon.  Spare us?

NOTABLE:  You know all the Slavic movies seem to have the same cast.  We may need to send humanitarian aid in the form of actors.

BEST PART:  “Wave! Smile!  Let them see we’re fine and we don’t give a shit!”.”          

BEST LINE:  “I know a soldier when I see one and you’re not one.” 

or

“Where’s the accordian?  Have we won or what?”

or

“I’m just a voice in the desert

CROWNS:  3 out of 5
