Storyline

These are the early 1900s. Gibran, a young painter and poet, arrives in Beirut and gets to know Skeikh Fares, a rich aristocrat who was a friend of his father's years before. The young man falls in love with his beautiful daughter, Salma, who is equally attracted to Gibran. But the local bishop disapproves of such a relationship and forces Salma to marry Mansoor Bey. Mansoor, who is a gambler and the lover of a dancer, soon deserts his home. Salma and Gibran meet again but their love remains platonic. They will be separated for ever when Salma dies giving birth to a stillborn child. Written by Guy Bellinger

The Broken Wings
28 April 2011 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

My heart aches giving this movie an overall rating of 9, as it is above and beyond even 10 (considering the stature of the author).

The cast was good, acting was fantastic and the direction was excellent considering the kind of book that was tried filming, as it was like an effort to summarize the complete universe in one single word.

I am surprised that a movie as splendid as this was not reviewed by anyone on here (or anywhere else that much). If you want to know what 'seeing a smile of pleasure mingled with sadness' means, you should definitely read the book and watch the movie, only to find out that you will do it again.

PS: And when the wings are broken, you finally learn to soar high up.
