"10 Minutes" in Sarajevo

I was doing research on the Bosnian War for a law project yesterday, and I came across this. It's a film about how differently 10 minutes can be experienced by a Japanese tourist in Rome and a Bosnian family in Sarajevo.

10 Minutes, by Ahmed Imamovic, actually won the 2002 award for Best European Short Film. Watch it when you have the time - it's so worth it. The Bosnian War may be over, but this film is timeless in that war is always happening, and we very often make our way through life forgetting that.

I think the concept film suggests that these two "10 minutes" are simultaneous, when they are not. The interpolated "10 minutes" is the civil war scenes. This is framed by post-war scenes. Simultaneity is also suggested by the Asian tourist's photo of the family that was killed in the shelling. The concurrency is highly suggestive.

I think it would have been better if they had had a bigger budget (real explosions rather than PP sound clips. The block of flats area seemed pretty convincing though.
