The Hunting Party
(USA/Germany, 2007, 103 minutes)
A washed-out star journalist convinces his former cameraman to help him track down a notorious war criminal in the Balkans. Surprising attempt at viewing the Balkan conflict through the prism of black comedy with a hint of political satire, inspired by a stranger-than-fiction real-life episode; it doesn't fully work but certainly is worth a mark for the attempt.
