Product Description

Hannah Maynard, prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague, is leading a trial against a former commander of the Yugoslavian National Army who is accused of the deportation and later killing of dozens of Bosnian-Muslim civilians. When a key witness commits suicide, it looks like the case will unravel, however Hannah refuses to give in.

Hoping to uncover new findings, she travels to the witness' burial in Sarajevo and meets his sister Mira who she senses has much more to say than she is willing to admit. Despite threats of violence, Mira reluctantly agrees to testify at The Hague. However, she and Hannah must both risk life and limb to make it to the court, only to discover that there are traitors among their own ranks.

Good script, directing, and acting.
DD
That's the main reason I so strongly recommend this film: Global injustice is close to the heart of men and women with active spiritual lives.
David Crumm
Not something to see when you need cheering up, but an excellent under-the-radar indie movie in my book.

First and foremost, "Storm" is a crackling political thriller set in contemporary Europe. No, you won't find big-budget Hollywood special effects here. But this is a tale worthy of Hitchcock in which an innocent survivor of Serbian ethnic cleansing finds her entire family suddenly in danger wherever they turn.

When I popped the preview disc into my DVD player, I didn't move for 103 minutes. The storyline and direction is that well crafted. In the crime-drama genre, this is a "procedural"--showing us the risks and heartbreaking choices that arise in the day-to-day completion of a major human-rights case. At times, you might be reminded of "Law and Order" on a global scale.

But there's so much more in this film! That's why I'm strongly recommending "Storm." It's not only thrilling to watch and enlightening as a glimpse into European political intrigue. The film also is a powerful story about the overall cost of such investigations in the lives of survivors. Unfortunately, there are millions of survivors of crimes against humanity all around the world. Sometimes, as Americans, it's easy to say: Why don't they all come forward?

"Storm" answers that question. Yes, this is fiction. Survivor Mira Arendt's case is not a real case. But her story is truthful on a deep level. In this review, I don't want to spoil the twists and turns of the hair-raising plot, but I can say this: Mira passionately hopes that the Serbian architect of these crimes will be punished at the Hague. When events in the case take a shocking, tragic turn--and seem to be heading in the criminal's favor--Mira finally decides to come forward and reveal her own evidence.

<strong>Storm</strong> (Hans-Christian Schmid, 2009)

Hans-Christian Schmid has been directing films since the late eighties, but he got his first big buzz in America in 2006 with <em>Requiem</em> (which is basically the other half of the story of Anneliese Michel, which also came to screen in 2005 in <em>The Exorcism of Emily Rose</em>). For those of us seeing his work for the first time, Schmid provided ample evidence that he is capable of producing powerful, slow-moving drama about either demonic possession or a young woman slowly going insane, your call. (That the ambiguity still exists at the end of the film is one of its strongest points.) His follow-up was <em>Storm</em>, and it couldn't be any more different from <em>Requiem</em> if it tried: a tense courtroom drama dealing with ethnic cleansing in Yugoslavia during the civil war that split the country into modern-day Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia, et al. If you want to show your versatility as a director, these would be two excellent films to do so in the shortest possible amount of time. And while <em>Storm</em> is no <em>Requiem</em>, it's a solid courtroom thriller that echoes the Nazi courtroom dramas of the fifties while staying entirely grounded in modern times.

Plot: Hannah (<em>Bright Star</em>'s Kerry Fox) is a war crimes tribunal prosecutor charged with bringing Croatian general Goran Duric (<em>Madonna</em>'s Drazen Kuhn) to justice for wartime atrocities during Operation Storm (Duric is based on real-life Storm commander Ante Gotovina, a truly nasty character; you can check out a bio on wikipedia. Short answer, at the end of the real-life trial, he went to prison for twenty-four years).

This movie is about bringing a war criminal to justice. It relates to the war that took place in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s but the same types of crimes continue in other countries today. The crimes are a filthy business but the movie shows that the work of trying to bring the guilty to justice can be a dirty business as well. The victims of the crimes can be victimized again in the effort.

We do not see any bloody flashbacks to show us the crimes committed. But the threats from those who don't want the truth come out is a menacing presence throughout the movie. I believe this is the most effective way to present the story and I appreciate the director's restraint.

The acting by the two female leads, Kerry Fox and Anamaria Marinca, is superb. This is an excellent film and I hope many others will watch it.

"Storm" (104 min.) is another release in the excellent on-going Film Movement DVD series. The movie, directed by German Hans-Christian Schmid, centers around the attempt of a prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague, to convict a Yugoslav general of certain war crimes committed during the Balkan War in the 1990s. When a key witness commits suicide, the prosecutor needs to rebuid the case and ultimately turns to the sister of the key witness. From there things grow more and more tense.

This movie felt very "European" from start to finish. The locales used in the movie (Sarajevo, Berlin, THe Hague, among others) certainly contribute to that. But it's also in the style of filming, which is very different from your standard Hollywood feature. The acting in this movie is fantastic, none more so than Romanian actress Anamaria Marinca (who also starred in "4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days") as the sister, and of course also Kerry Fox as the prosecutor. Overall, this is a solid but sobering look at the long-term consequences of the Balkan War on just one family. Not something to see when you need cheering up, but an excellent under-the-radar indie movie in my book.
