We gave it a B-

Set “somewhere in the Balkans” in 1995, Fernando León de Aranoa’s hit-and-miss film about the absurdities of trying to do good during wartime stars Benicio del Toro and Tim Robbins as Western aid workers stymied by bureaucratic red tape and centuries-old customs. Del Toro’s low-key resignation gives the film what power it has, but the female characters (played by Mélanie Thierry and Olga Kurylenko) are disappointingly thin. The film takes flight in its final scene, but it’s too little too late.
