I don´t know whether the story is based on real facts or not but I guess events like this happen every day and journalists and photographers must find it very hard to cope with this kind of situations. I don´t want to write my impressions on the movie; I´d rather read yours or listen to them in class -as the topic for your final oral exams.
This is probably the best definition I have read of this film: it is a reminder of the horror behind the images of war that face us in the media every day.
This film reminded me of photographer Kevin Carter, winner of a Pultizer Prize for this photo on the right taken in Sudan in 1993: a starving child collapsing on the ground, unable to walk, while a vulture stalks not far from him/her(?). Haunted by the horrific images he had witnessed, Carter committed suicide in 1994, shortly after receiving the award.
