Zozo is a great movie
25 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Went to the movies not knowing what to expect, and came out of the theater in complete silence, red eyes and in deep thought... As a Lebanese, I could relate almost 90% to this film. It is about the life of a young Lebanese boy during the time of war and having to immigrates to Sweden.

It was very well casted and produced. Also, there were many hilarious jokes in it. The grandfather plays a great role and Zozo the character is also amazing.If you have the chance, definitely go see it. It is worth your time, just be prepared for some tears to role down your face... Well done!
