Very interesting movie dealing with some very sensitive issues with a very daring handling
27 January 2005 | by (egypt) – See all my reviews

The history of a nation , lies in the memories of its heroes... An amazing journey through the memories of a dying fighter , taking us through the Arab Israeli conflict , shocking details of a history that most of us r desiring to know about , a very interesting movie dealing with very sensitive issues with a very daring handling , I LOVED IT!!! i would like to comment on the great performance of Rim El-Turky in the role of Nahila the fighter's wife , & also the escape scene was fascinating , & i can't ignore the music as it just puts u into the mood.... i just wish to see this movie winning some big award in some international festival , as it deserves it! u should see it to know for yourself...
