None of these movies, however, have taken a perspective of war similar to that in "Harrison's Flowers."This movie looks at the people we forget about, the photojournalists who take us into the battlefield with their cameras.
Set in 1991 during the ethnic cleansing in Europe, the movie shows the importance of the people who make sure the world knows what is going on during wars and the risks they take in order to provide this information.
Harrison Lloyd (David Strathairn) is one of these people.In fact, he is a Pulitzer prize-winning photojournalist who works for Newsweek.He reluctantly takes an assignment to go shoot a civil war in Yugoslavia.He was only supposed to be gone for a week, but he is close to the location of an explosion and is presumed dead.His wife, Sarah (Andie MacDowell) refuses to believe that her husband is dead and, against the advice of her family and friends, embarks on a treacherous journey to bring him back home.
This was insane for more than one reason.First, she had never seen war except in the pictures and on television.She had never seen the brutality through anything but her husband's pictures and personal accounts.She was also a woman, and within five or six hours of being in the country, she was beaten up by one enemy solider and almost raped by another.Also, there is no proof that her husband is alive.Altogether, she seemed to have lost all her rationality and was determined to make her two young children orphans.
Although there are plenty of crazy reasons for her to not go, there are also many occurrences that justify her actions and drive her forward.First, the Red Cross told her that her husband died in a building that was hit by a bomb, and that his body was buried immediately to prevent epidemic.In her eyes, since she couldn't see her husband's body, that meant that he was still alive.Additionally, she watched CNN religiously after Harrison was presumed dead and believed that she saw him on a broadcast.Thirdly, their son's birthday was coming up and he promised to be back by then.
The fact that Harrison already had a strained relationship with his son also added fuel to the fire.Sarah received a call the night after her husband was presumed dead that she thought came from Harrison.And, of course, her overwhelming love for Harrison drives her to look for him, despite the fact that she could be signing her own death certificate.
After she literally drives into a battlefield, is almost ran over by a tank and sees a man shot point-blank in the head, she is found by a group of photojournalists trailing the war.
Through this encounter, she is brought to Kyle (Adrien Brody), another journalist who knew her husband and agrees to help her find him.They journey together in a vehicle labeled with T.V. on its sides, windows and hood so they won't be mistaken for the enemy and killed.Many times the war is right outside and they are almost hit by tanks and shells.
Although, the movie is based on a love story, this is almost invisible next to the blatant facts of war that it sets forth.Before Sarah left, people were calling the war a simple "ethnic skirmish."Inside of the action she saw the ugliness and reality of what she had been making a career reporting about the majority of her adult life.

Harrison is an ex-Scotland yard detective hired to save an ex-convict accused of killing a New York cop. Harrison prowls the Big Apple by day and night seeking the answers to his mysterious case, but more importantly the answer to the question "Why isn't the New York Police Department investigating the case?"
...
Each scene is flatly layed outand consists of a conversation between Harrison, a retired Scotland Yardcop, and somebody else, usually some street crumb.
...
Harrison Lloyd is a Pulitzer-winning photojournalist. His wife and family are making it hard for him to keep his mind on his work when he's in a war zone, and he wants to change jobs to something less stressful. But he's got one last assignment, in war-torn Yugoslavia, in 1991, at the height of the fighting.
...
But it is Sarah who leaves others in disbelief, hell-bent in her pursuit to find Harrison, dead or alive.
...
Continuity: When Eric, Sarah and Marc are driving through the war-torn countryside trying to make their way to the hospital where they believe Harrison might be, the large SUV they are driving has a giant "TV" painted in white on the front windshield.
...
Revealing mistakes: In the final scene, it is told that Sarah and Harrison have moved to St. Louis and they are seen dancing during this voice-over.
...
The 'hook' of the story is that Sarah Lloyd (Andie MacDowell) travelsto Croatia in 1991 to try to find and rescue her husband Harrison, aprize-winning journalist who is missing, presumed killed. (The flowersof the title are those in his greenhouse - tended in his absence bytheir young son).
...
There aredeleted scenes (mainly Sarah and Harrison, family and friends in theUS), cast interviews, a digital effects feature, theme song video, &c..
...
As Sara (the wife) and the photographers look for Harrison Lloyd, notonlydo you see how far a wife will go in order to find her husband, but youalsowitness just how far photojournalists will go in order to save theirown.
...
The central figure of this moviefrom a standpoint of character arc is not Harrison, or his wife, Sarah, butKyle Morris.
...
Also, Harrison and Sarah's son was sort of creepy. Sorry, but there itis.

Harrison Lloyd is a photojournalist who has already won a Pulitzerprice with his photographs of several wars. But he now has a wife andtwo children and he doesn't want to go to another war-zone anymore,because he is afraid that he might die while doing his job. He wants tochange jobs, but his boss has given him one last assignment. He'll haveto travel to ex-Yugoslavia, where the civil war has just started. Whatappears to be a small incident at first, quickly proves to be one ofthe most gruesome wars in recent history and it doesn't take longbefore Harrison is missing, presumably dead. But his wife Sarah refusesto believe that he's no longer alive and decides to go after him and tolook for him. As she penetrates deeper into the war zone, she isconfronted with all the horrors that were committed in this war: randomexecutions of soldiers and civilians, rape, snipers, the uncertainty ofwhere and who the enemy is,...

Strathairn doesn't have much screen time but manages to infuse Harrison with enough of a warm personality so that the audience cares when he goes missing early on in the film.
...
Once Strathairn leaves the film, though, his absence is horribly felt... With MacDowell fiddling around and Chouraqui aimlessly trying to put the film together, at least the audience is also deeply intent on the possible reemergence of Harrison--not only does that bring a happy ending (the film's actual ending, by the way, is little more than a contrivance), but also brings some of the needed support from the always dependable Strathairn.
