Crazy ;;is a film on the reminiscences of Dutch UN soldiers about the battlefields where they served; memories that are inextricably linked to one special song that brought them solace far from home. Starting with the very first UN mission to Korea (1950), the film takes us on a journey to Lebanon, Cambodia, Rwanda and former-Yugoslavia – and ends with the Fall of Srebrenica in 1995.
Using home videos and photos, moving and also gruesome archive footage, the soldiers tell their poignant stories about responsibility, fear, love, impotence and death. Through music, Crazy takes us on a very personal journey inside the lives of Dutch UN veterans.
Crazy is a 1999 documentary film by Heddy Honigmann on the traumatic effects of war on the soldiers of UN missions.
The documentary shows Dutch soldiers that have served in UN peacekeeping missions in former Yugoslavia, Kosovo, Lebanon, Cambodia, Rwanda. The heroic duties contrast with the local horrors. The music, the favorite songs of the soldiers, serves the eight men and one woman interviewed as a key to unlock the chest of vivid memories: frequent trips through “Bomb Alley”, food convoys, the fall of Sarajevo, and camp life. One of the soldiers is marines commander Patrick Cammaert, who since has served in further very important UN missions. He chose the song "Crazy" (performed by Seal) to accompany the bloodbath of the attack on the Sarajevo market.
