I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It was great. It portrayed a passionate topic and had me close to tears. The movie discussed a topic that is not new to many but in a different light. Actually it shows both views, pros and cons, something that is unique and brings both perspectives to the table. I don't view a lot of documentaries but this movie is a must see. I am a fan of "The Last Samuri" and "Braveheart" which rate high on many people's list. I place this movie on that same level. I hope to see a lot more work from Mr. Shahadah; truly a great piece of work. As I said, it was a great movie and definitely a must see!!!
