Best movie ever
28 January 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The best movie I have ever seen in my ENTIRE life - and I watch A LOT of movies. The finesse with which the main character is built is just beautiful - she just shines. The movie is not stereotypical at all. The film also doesn't fall into the trap of making the ending happy and conclusive - at the end you're just left with a smile on your face and feeling like Zouina (the main character) is actually somewhere out there living her life. The supporting actors are perfect, from the bus driver to the neighbors to the grocery store clerk. The pace of the movie is that of a lullaby - a still, sad, lullaby. This movie deserves all the praise in the world - I don't think there is any movie out there, even the big Hollywood productions, that could top this film.
