a poetic absurd image of the war
8 February 2005 | by (Lebanon) – See all my reviews

comparing to other movies that dealt with the subject of the Lebanese war, this movie can seem poor cinematographic wise but on the other hand it has a very good description or if we might call it transcription of the reality. the movie also highlights the problem of the people who escaped from the south to the city of Beirut and who found themselves implicated in a war they know nothing about. in the Shadow of the City you can find all the absurdities that unfortunately are reality. and not to forget that Chamoun has put all the pain in a very poetic frame that made his work far from being a melodrama. very nice performance by Majdi Machmouchi.
