The Blacks

75 minutes

On the last day of the Balkan war, a Croatian squad goes on a final mission, but each of the soldiers harbours lingering questions or doubts about their roles. Taut, claustrophobic drama about the ethics and morals of war that is well enough done, with an excellent sense of foreboding atmosphere, but brings no new ideas to the table.
