Harrison Lloyd is a Pulitzer-winning photojournalist. His wife and family are making it hard for him to keep his mind on his work when he's in a war zone, and he wants to change jobs to something less stressful. But he's got one last assignment, in war-torn Yugoslavia, in 1991, at the height of the fighting. Word comes back that he apparently died in a building collapse, but his wife Sarah (also a journalist for Newsweek) refuses to believe that he's dead and goes looking for him. She's helped immensely by the photo-journalists Eric Kyle and Marc Stevenson that she runs into over there; together, they're determined to make it through the chaotic landscape to Vukovar, which is not only the nexus of the war but where she believes Harrison is located. Meanwhile, Harrison's son Cesar is looking after his father's prized greenhouse, keeping hope, and flowers, alive.

Lee's background caused him to be depressed and withdraw from close relationships for the most part. So the movie can be very sad and some may find it depressing. When his brother dies, he's put in an awkward situation when he finds out his brother wanted him to be guardian for his teenage nephew. Given he's never really dealt with his own grief and guilt from a tragedy that happened in his past, that seems impossible to him. He manages to arrange his brother's services somehow, but dealing with his nephew isn't something he's prepared for. He has flashbacks to years ago often in this movie and you don't always know the flashback is starting or ending. The musical soundtrack is too loud, as if make up up for the relative lack of enough meaningful dialogue in the movie. Lee and the nephew talk, but not enough to truly bridge the gap.Dealing with deep feelings isn't something Lee does well, so don't expect much of the ending...it doesn't get better in this movie. Good acting, I guess, in a repressed sort of way. But itt wasn't a story I would have chosen to watch if I had known what it was like..

Personally, I loved the characters and seeing most of them become heros...before they became Nazi zombie breakfast. It's not as laugh out loud hilarious as Dale & Tucker--but if that's your beat, this is your next must-see.

Christopher S (gb) wrote: Director Fritz Lang infuses Graham Greene's spy thriller with a palpable noir atmosphere and a number of classic stylish suspense sequences. The plot can be awkwardly-paced at times, but at its best moments a film noir classic.
