Beautiful People (1999)

Directed by
Jasmin Dizdar

In London, during October 1993, England is playing Holland in the preliminaries of the World Cup. The Bosnian War is at its height, and refugees from the ex-Yugoslavia are arriving.

Football rivals, and political adversaries from the Balkans all precipitate conflict and amusing situations. Meanwhile, the lives of four English families are affected in different ways by encounter with the refugees, which sets the scene for five intertwining stories in this film.

In one story, Dr. Mouldy (Nicholas Farrel) helps a young Bosnian couple through a difficult pregnancy. His neighbor, Griffin Midge (Danny Nussbaum), gets high on heroin, ends up on the wrong plane and passes out on an aid shipment eventually dropped in the middle of Bosnia.

Meanwhile, London politician George Thornton (Charles Kay) makes numerous speeches on Bosnia's problems. But his daughter, Portia (Charlotte Coleman), begins a romantic relationship with a Bosnian immigrant.

The movie succeeds in encouraging peace and unity among different people. The stories clearly show the benefits of seeing life from a different perspective. Several characters make positive changes in their lives as they are exposed to other views.
