synopsis :

1995, “somewhere in the Balkans” at the end of the Yugoslav wars. Veteran aid workers Mambrú (del Toro), wisecracking B (Robbins) and newcomer Sophie (Thierry), try to remove a cadaver from a well. Somebody threw it in to spoil the water. Over the course of 24 hours, this simple task becomes an impossible mission where the real enemy is irrationality. They cross the war landscape trying to fix the problem, facing endless layers of bureaucratic red tape. Humor, drama, emotion, routine, danger, hope: it all fits in a perfect day.

Tahun 1995, “di suatu tempat di Balkan”, pada akhir perang Yugoslavia, seorang pekerja sosial, seorang humoris, dan seorang pendatang baru, bekerja sama untuk memindahkan mayat yang merusak air sumur. Selama 24 jam, tugas sederhana ini menjadi mustahil karena musuh sesungguhnya adalah irasionalitas. Mereka mencoba mencari solusi sambil melintasi lanskap perang dan menghadapi lapisan birokrasi yang tak berujung. Humor, drama, emosi, rutinitas, bahaya, harapan: semua terjadi di suatu hari yang sempurna.

Benicio Del Toro toplines this sporadically engaging Balkan War comedy from Spanish director Fernando Leon de Aranoa.
