Review Nevertheless, the story ends up being too ambiguous, with a couple of threads never really followed through, or else depicted in a confusingly subtle, convoluted manner. Graced with touching performances, this periodically riveting work might, paradoxically, have resulted in a universally accessible tale of ethnic strife if it had clarified its specifics...Giannaris admits he liberally took dramatic license at certain points - making one wonder at his inclusion of a disclaimer containing a caveat regarding the film's fidelity (or lack thereof) to the facts, as well as to question whether starting the movie with Senia's subjective voice-over was strategically off the mark, considering the realistically gritty material - and quasi-documentary form - that follows.
