Fascinating throughout.
3 July 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

As I watched this documentary, I was struck by how difficult it must have been to make this film. After all, the religious authorities in Mecca would not allow non-Muslims to film there and I am pretty sure there must have been TONS of logistical difficulties getting this thing made. So, I really appreciate all the hard work that went into making this one.

This film is about the Hajj--the Islamic pilgrimage that Muslims do in Mecca each year. However, before arriving in this Arabian city, the film begins in three different countries--and follows three different believers (from the US, South Africa and Malaysia) throughout their journey. As the journey progresses, the narrator does an excellent job of explaining each step and its significance. Overall, a one of a kind experience--one that is really well made and fascinating throughout. A must for anyone--not just if they are Muslim.
