Harrison’s Flowers

Sometimes love is the only proof you need.

During the Croatian War of Independence in 1991, American war correspondent Harrison Lloyd (David Strathairn) is assumed to have been killed, but his wife (Andie MacDowell) refuses to believe it and goes looking for him. Mixed reviews for this intense drama that boasts fine performances and horrifying battle sequences from the killing fields of the former Yugoslavia. The story moves along briskly and the director makes sure that we keep worrying about every character’s safety as bullets fly over their heads. However, the depiction of how war correspondents work is less than convincing.

2000-France. 130 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Elie Chouraqui. Book: Isabel Ellsen. Cast: Andie MacDowell (Sarah Lloyd), David Strathairn (Harrison Lloyd), Elias Koteas (Yeager Pollack), Adrien Brody, Brendan Gleeson, Alun Armstrong.
