Storyline

Ziyad and Maryam are a happy young couple in Lebanon, yet after three years of marriage they remain childless. Due to intense family pressure, they try everything they can but eventually learn that Maryam is infertile. Ziyad repeatedly reassures her of his undying love, but family and social pressure, particularly his evil, meddling mother, gradually poison their happy relationship until the love, enthusiasm and humour of their early days soon take a tragic turn.

One of the very best
28 January 2003 | by (lebanon) – See all my reviews

I don't know if you'll have the chance to see this movie in the USA but i'm sure it is one of the very best films i have seen. Bernadette Hodeib is in a perfect acting role, Talal El-Jordi is shining (as always), and the story is a unforgettable one... I doubt that there would be anyone who wouldn't be impressed by the story ending...DO NOT MISS IT
