As a Bosnian myself, I just have to make a few pointers to this otherwise ok review. Bahrija did not convert to Islam. He was a Muslim when he served in the Army. He was just secular, like majority of Bosniaks are. What happened is that he joined the wahhabi movement, essentially a sect amongst Sunni Muslims. This movie also points out how poverty stricken people are drawn to this sect by jobs they offer - Amar came into contact with them only when they offered him a job fixing computers. It is also shown how people with problems can't really find support in today's hectic lifestyle, thereby finding that support in a close-knit group like this Wahhabi sect. One thing that every review of this movie should take into account is that the message contained within is aimed primarily at the members of Bosnian society. There is currently a confusion in Bosnia as to how to go about dealing with this highly strict and conservative stream of Islam - introduced at the onset of Bosnian war by the influx of volunteers from Middle Eastern countries - in what is otherwise very liberal and secular society. This conflict of two worldviews and confusion it breeds is depicted throughout the movie by showing diametrically opposite lifestyles, as well as clashes between secular Bosniaks and their conservative counterparts, following this new stream of Islam. Very ending hints at this, by providing a cliffhanger ending, with two paths to choose from. It clearly states that things are not black and white, or good or evil. Just that choosing one does preclude the other.
