Synopsis by Rovi
While the manager of Sarajevo's historic Hotel Europa makes preparations for an event commemorating the 100th anniversary of Archduke Franz Ferdinand's assassination, the hotel's employees, who have not been paid for two months, are planning to go on strike. Meanwhile, a French diplomat rehearses a speech for the occasion in his VIP suite, and a TV news reporter interviews people at the hotel about war and its consequences. Danis Tanovic directed this political drama adapted from a play by French intellectual Bernard-Henri Lévy.
