Overwrought, unevenly acted and plowing through the Siege of Sarajevo with blinkers on (it’s never even clear who’s fighting whom and for what reason)... has little to offer beyond some pitiful twists.

Penelope Cruz and Emile Hirsch are ill-matched – in every sense – lovers in Sergio Castellitto’s misguided romantic melodrama.

Twice Born Review

I won tickets to an advance screening of this and was pleasantly surprised. Despite not knowing what I was in for, I found it to be interesting and captivating. The plot twists and turns kept me on my toes and I found the transition between past and present to flow nicely. I recommended this to everyone!
