Sergiusz Zymelka was great in this film. As a war orphan he started following Sharkey around since Sharkey falsely claim he was from Norway and this is where Vlado (SZ) wanted to go since this is where the Eskimos live. But first getting out of Bosnia was itself an adventure and through all this both the man and the boy had their personal differences of opinions as well as hostility among some of the citizens and the military. A great movie.

A great film with Bob Hoskins playing a pretty awful character as a fake UN official in wartime Bosnia. He's looking for a boy to take back to Poland to be adopted. In Bosnia he meets Vlado (Seguisz Zymelka) who both go on a horrendous journey through the country. Serguisz, who is actually Polish, gives a fine performance as the boy witnessing many of the horrors of war. Apparently, he had to learn his lines in English for the part.
