Synopsis:
Stephen Dillane is British journalist Michael Henderson, who decides to risk everything to help the innocent people of a besieged city. With support from the flamboyant 'star' American journalist, Flynn (Woddy Harrelson), and an aid worker, Nina (Tomei), Henderson embarks on a perilous and terrifying journey to evacuate the city's orphan children to safety. The film is inspired by the true story of ITN news journalist Michael Nicholson, who after months of reporting on the siege of Sarajevo, smuggled a child out of the war torn city and later adopted her.
The film is much more than the story of one man's personal act of compassion, it is a harrowing and moving tribute to a city that refused to give in.

Death in Yugoslavia - Welcome to Sarajevo review by JD

Spoiler Alert
11/09/2016

A very dramatic account of the brutalities in Yugoslavia as it was splitting up. Lots of mangled bleeding bodies. A group of journalists as the main group carrying the story. A touching moment when one journalist brings one child home. Gory, brutal, violent and ultimately not a great film, why? I think it is the camera work and direction. It is difficult to feel involved. It becomes a bit of old news footage.
