The landscape in some of the scenes was amazing, and makes me curious to see more of Bosnia now. Second, the cast itself is multinational, reflecting the multinational character of international assistance efforts. The civilian-military interaction was all too familiar, as were the many scenes with Stryker armored personnel carriers, a common sight during my time in Iraq. I thought the film provided a very good feel for the frustrations of development work in a war setting. In addition, the dialogue and acting were great. At one point, one of the characters, seeing Olga Kurylenko for the first time, mutters under his breath, "And so where is she from — Models without Borders?

View All Critic Reviews Oct 03, This was an amazing film, I was not expecting this to be what I watched. I've been looking to watch this film for the past year and finally sat down to watch it and I can't believe I wasn't heralding this film earlier. Robbins is hilarious in the support, that one scene between Del Toro and himself near the dead cow is worth the price of the movie alone.
A strong cast and strong character moments create a film unlike any other film I have seen lately. If you enjoy character films, this is going to be one to stick on the shelf or re-watch on Netflix. Brendan N Super Reviewer. Apr 10, I would like to apologize to the people of Letterboxd, because shortly after I posted my Kung Fu Yoga review, I went into the draft tab of my Gmail account and found every Jackie Chan movie that I've reviewed pre-Letterboxd and just started posting them on Letterboxd. Even with that, and Letterboxd lets you see the percentage of movies from a certain actor or director you have reviewed.
I have posted seven reviews out of films available on the site. That's nuts. Really don't know why I started with that, but let's move on.
A Perfect Day
I've always been anti-war guy. While some people say that it is unavoidable in some cases, I've always found that to be a shitty excuse. The reason that I'm against war are my own, but mostly they're related to the fact that good people are lost on both sides of the equation. No one nation is fully evil and I know some people will argue otherwise, but it's just factually incorrect.
Not to mention the damage done to people who might not even have anything to do with the war itself. Like civilians. And, again, this is on both sides of the equation. I do have problems with the organizational aspects of the military, but I support the troops much as the next guy. But I still find the idea that, on this side of the world, you can sign up for the military, go to war, kill countless people before you're actually legally able to drink. Eighteen is way too young to join the military, you're literally just out of your 'childhood' and, in some ways, you are still a child.
And here you are thrown into this world that you probably don't have the maturity to be in. Legal age to join the military should be That's neither here nor there, but I do appreciate the fact that the movie focuses on some of the unsung heroes of war, particularly in these parts of the world, and those are the aid workers that, in theory, try to clean up some of the mess that the war has managed to bring to their country. Perhaps this film's more small-scale approach, in that the main narrative driving force for the characters is to get some rope so they can remove a corpse from a well.

Of course, that's used as a stepping point into some of the ideas the film wants to explore and the movie, really, is about much more than just finding rope. It's a more comical movie than I would have anticipated. But it's also not a movie that shies away from showcasing the harsh realities of living in war-torn Serba, at least for kids like Nikola.
Who end up being orphaned without even knowing about it until much, much later. But that's not to say the movie is perfect, but I, again, appreciated the fact that it focuses on people who don't really get a lot of credit for their work. And, maybe, that's the way it needs to be, for every one, not just aid workers. You do the work because you actually want to help the people of a specific country, not because you're looking for 'glory'. As I said, the movie is relatively simple. It's straightforward, but I do think there's enough character development for things to be kept interesting.
Mambru, the head of the mission, struggles once the woman he had an affair with is sent to investigate whether they should cancel his mission or not. So there's some butting heads between the two and I think the movie definitely focuses more on that than I think they should. Not that it's bad, but it feels a little bland all things considered.
Not that they shouldn't have explored some of these ideas, it's just that the way they did it felt like it was from another movie entirely. The situation is definitely helped when Benicio Del Toro is your lead actor and he has Olga Kurylenko to play off of. They're both very good together and I think they make it work. The focus of the film isn't necessarily on them, though a lot of it seems to be about the tension that exists between them after Katya, rightfully, accuses Mambru of tricking her to sleep with him when she had a boyfriend.
There's also Sophie, who's a bit of a wide-eyed idealist considering that she is a greenhorn. Her idealism, inadvertently, ends up getting them into trouble as her words have made it so that they are prohibited from doing their jobs in removing the body from the well. Company Credits.
