Storyline

The horrors of war are examined from the view points of lifelong friends, who end up on opposing sides in the war in Sarajevo. One is an expert marksman, who trains the snipers used to terrify the city and the other becomes a freedom fighter, who rejects his friend's offer to gain an escape from the city. As might be expected, the two eventually have to face-off against one another. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

You guys are missing the point, honestly, UNIFORMS, incorrect use of a mosin M-44? Who cares, it's the message that counts. Maybe I have to apologize for having a life outside of looking up little discrepancies in movies, but I try to take the movie for what it's worth rather than pick it apart. It was an HBO movie, yes, it's going to be in English! Get used to it, most movies are written in the language of the intended country of release. It's a message that goes back to the US civil war but brought up into modern times. It was a well made movie with good acting and an exciting screenplay. I was thuroughly entertained while at the same time being forced to know that the back-story was taken directly out of real life. Great movie (period)
