amateur jerky hand held camera distracting
19 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film shows what a hajj entails to Mecca and its surroundings. If only the hand held camera had not been so jumpy, I found this distracting as I tried to focus on what was going on. Surely there are ways to reduce this!

The story such as it is follows 3 Moslems on their hajj. A white female Texan, a Black South African and a Malaysian businessman.

I learned a few things I didn't know but kept thinking how much more beautifully the movie could have been shot...it is amateurish with the jerky motions mentioned above, no unique camera angles, and no cinematography input of any note.

I guess in the spirit of the Hajj one should not criticize however... The topic gets a 10 this movie a 2...
