Very well made, tightly structured, wryly humorous documentary.
17 July 2007 | by mpagSee all my reviews

A very well crafted short documentary which reveals the fascinating musical subculture, a cross between the 100 Club 1976 and Berlin 1945, which flowered in besieged Sarajevo under the madness and privations of war. Club goers had to race across a sniper targeted bridge, to be able to lose themselves in the punk-thrash frenzy of the bands who formed to play in dark underground venues. As well as an escape from the chaos above ground music held and continues to hold an important symbolic significance for the young people of the city as a mark of their connection to a wider 'normal' Europe. There is one sad sting in the tale, but the interviewees all possess a remarkably wry sense of humour and an even more remarkable sense of optimism. Far away people, figures in just another news war story, never seemed so close to ourselves.
