Jafalad’s review published on Letterboxd :
Things We Lost in the Fire is a film about the hope that can be found in adversity. It is a human story that is heartfelt and earnestly told by Danish director, Susanna Bier.
Halle Berry and Benicio Del Toro play the lost souls whose lives are inflicted with loss (Berry) and drug addiction (Del Toro). Both are on top form here particularly Del Toro whose character, the aptly named Jerry Sunbourne, is played with the required spirit of empathy .
