From the everyday to the universal: The War Is Over
Abstract:Following the tradition of Italian neo-realism, Nina Mimica's poignant The War Is Over captures something of the horror and the emotional suffering of war, in a deceptively simple, yet powerfully expressed and dynamically realized, parable. This article will explore how the film historicizes war to produce a powerfully universal statement.
