As to the film itself, the first half-hour is almost silent; only in latter parts does Nachtwey speak to Frei's video camera. ("War Photographer" has been remastered to 35mm for theatrical release this summer.) Although some footage was produced via a micro-camera attached to Nachtwey's Canon, it rarely provides any special insight into his efforts--and Nachtwey's high-profile war work proves less moving than his simple human coverage, as of a Jakarta man who is raising his homeless family by the rails where one night he lost an arm and leg to a passing train. Frei's Betamax also serves him well in close-in situations with Nachtwey; a visit to an East Java sulfur mine, with both men engulfed in fumes, is particularly illuminating. Although commentary on Nachtwey is provided by the likes of CNN's chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour and Stern Magazine foreign editor Hans-Hermann Klare, in "War Photographer" it's the image that really tells the tale. Directed and produced by Christian Frei. A First Run/Icarus release. Documentary. English- and German-language; subtitled. Unrated. Running time: 96 min.
