Stephen Dalton Hollywood Reporter Throwing together multiple characters in a single luxury hotel, this Altman-esque ensemble drama has lofty aims, but misses the target. Mar 1, 2017 Full Review Jessica Kiang indieWire Polemical as it is, Death in Sarajevo is a hotel movie, one that fluidly entertains even as it educates. Rated: B Mar 1, 2017 Full Review Henry Barnes Guardian Written and directed by Danis Tanovic, the Oscar-winning Bosnian director of No Man's Land, Death in Sarajevo presents a damning allegory for modern Europe. Rated: 4/5 Mar 1, 2017 Full Review Eddie Falvey One Room With A View Tanović's highly literate, complex satire seeks to interrogate its audience, unafraid to look it in the eye as if down the barrel of a gun. Rated: 4/5 Apr 15, 2019 Full Review Janire Zurbano Cinemanía (Spain) [Director Danis] Tanovic succeeds in moving away from the past conflict to look into the eyes of the dreaded present. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Mar 28, 2018 Full Review Diana Dabrowska Cinema Scope This tragicomedy asks how many times a continent can die and not draw any new conclusions from the experience.
