| Brilliant Balkan War Film
Halima's Path tackles the subject of the Balkan War, venturing much further than a simple retelling of events. Set in Bosnia, the story unfolds through the masterful use of flashback. Beginning in pre-conflict, multi-ethnic Yugoslavia the film culminates in present-day Bosnia with the tragic repercussions of the war. Halima's seemingly straightforward quest to have the remains of her husband and son identified from those found in a mass grave exposes a richly woven tapestry of events--a tapestry which reveals the very human side of war.

The film is brilliantly directed by Arsen A. Ostojic, with excellent performances delivered by a stellar cast. Particularly powerful are Alma Prica in the role of Halima and Olga Pakalovic as Safija. The evocative score adds to the authenticity of the film.

Halima's Path offers a novel look into the personal tragedy of war. This supremely moving film delivers a true emotional punch--be prepared to shed more than a few tears. A true masterpiece.
