The Situation
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Philip Haas


Shooting a fictional movie based on a real war while that war still rages is a risky proposition. But director Philip Haas (THE MUSIC OF CHANCE) has taken the plunge with THE SITUATION, a film set in Iraq as seismic changes grip the country. Connie Nielsen (ONE HOUR PHOTO) stars as Anna, an American journalist who investigates the possible drowning of an Iraqi boy by American soldiers, only to get caught up in the assassination of an Iraqi acquaintance as she travels between the cities of Baghdad and Samarra. In Baghdad Anna hooks up with her casual and disillusioned intelligence officer-boyfriend Dan (Damian Lewis), whose cynicism marks him out from his colleagues. But Anna also finds herself romantically drawn to Iraqi photographer Zaid (Mido Hamada), and when Anna is kidnapped after looking into the death of her friend, Dan and Zaid meet under difficult circumstances, setting out in a desperate bid to free her.
