TRIAGE is a well chosen title for this film about who survives an who dies in war: at times those triage decisions are made by serendipity (read 'bad luck'), at times they are made by physicians or medics tending the wounded on the battlefield, and at times they are submerged in the apparent 'survivors' only to later crush the life from those who make it home. Writer/Director Danis Tanovic has adapted Scott Anderson's novel is a manner that carries the seemingly simple act of 'triage' throughout the film, showing how that action can affect the lives of friends, family, and psychological wholeness of the victim.

Mark Walsh (Colin Farrell, in yet another powerful role) and his buddy David (Jamie Sives) are war photographers for a newspaper edited by Amy (Juliet Stevenson). Their current assignment is Kurdistan and the terrifying realities they not only experience but also commit to film are of such a horrid nature that they both are in shock: they not only witness killings and landmine explosion deaths, but they also watch one Dr. Talani (Branko Djuric) triage the wounded, deciding who can survive care and who is so near death that they are put aside to be later 'executed' by Dr. Talani in a compassionate gesture to end their futile suffering. The tension is so great that David decides to return home, leaving Mark to carry on the assignment. An explosion occurs and Mark is seriously injured but survives and after being tended by Dr. Talani he is encouraged to return home. There is no news as to where David is.

Mark returns home to his adoring Elena (Paz Vega), presents his photographs to Amy, and begins to heal: David's wife Diane (Kelly Reilly) is due to deliver their first child in two weeks and has had no word from David.

5.0 out of 5 stars Triage - A surprising gem October 18, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Triage" was a real gem. I enjoyed it much more than "The Hurt Locker", although I was expecting the latter to be great and sadly it wasn't, and I was expecting the former to be mediocre and it was great. Maybe that has clouded my judgement ... but not by much. The story is in two parts. The first is dominated by Colin Farrell and takes place mostly in Kurdistan. Farrell plays a photo journalist (Mark) who goes from war to war filming and documenting the events with his friend (David) who is also a photojournalist. Only Farrell returns home and he is wounded. What has happened to his friend and why does Farrell keep having terrible nightmares? During this part we see why the movie is called "Triage".

The second part mostly in Dublin and is dominated by the legendary veteran actor, Christopher Lee. Lee plays a Spanish psychologist who has a 'shady' past and is (Elena) Farrell's wife's grandfather. They are not on good terms but Elena is desperate to save Farrell who is becoming more and more erratic and losing his mind.

Through Lee's help we see flashbacks as to what happened to David.

I found the story very moving. I am baffled as to why the movie was not given a general release. The acting is superb, especially by the two stars. Strangely, Lee's name is missing from the star credits listed by Amazon????

Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars maturing talent of Colin Farrell September 20, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent film abour war zone photo-journalism, and is Colin Farrell's best role to date. He is maturing as an actor; going deeper and deeper into character. The appearance of legendary actor, Christopher Lee, is also a plus. Highly recommend this for serious film buffs.

1 Disc Blu-Ray, released August 10, 2010

"Triage" was written and directed by Danis Tanovic based on the book by Scott Anderson. The story takes place in 1988 when Mark Walsh played by Colin Farrell and his friend and colleague David played by Jamie Sives travel to Kurdistan to take war photography. Mark is injured in the process and comes home to his wife, Elena Morales played by Paz Vega and David's pregnant wife, Diane played by Kelly Reilly with a case of PTSD and an incomplete memory of what happened.

This may be one of Colin Farrell's best performances as the emotionally complex often tortured photographer. He has an excitement about the work he and his partner are doing in Kurdistan and is able to distance himself emotionally for the most part until he becomes more directly involved. His last clear memory of his friend is of an argument they had about David wanting to leave and Mark wanting to stay and work more. Farrell plays well the escalating feelings of guilt and remorse as well as the pain his body has gone through. Farrell got rail-thin for this role making his body painful to look at. He is mentally confused and faces off with Christopher Lee as Elena's grandfather who in the past was a therapist for war criminals (another juicy role for Lee).

Paz Vega besides looking beautiful is fantastic at the discovery process that her husband is no longer the man she sent off to war. She is earnest in her demands of Mark and argues her beliefs with her grandfather with a fiery spirit despite asking for his help with Mark.

Kelly Reilly's performance as the pregnant Diana is very brave while still occasionally dropping down to show that vulnerability of her fears about whether he'll return.
