The Imam - a captivating movie
1 May 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Overall a terrific and light-hearted movie; well-written, directed and edited, it is definitely worth seeing. I especially loved the role of the village-fool, his constant, erratic out-of-line and context remarks about the village-head certainly played well with me, I couldn't contain my laughter at one stage.

I guess the only criticism i can offer is in the way that an issue raised in the movie was left unresolved. I would have liked to see closure on this, but then again, it can be argued from an artistic perspective that some issues are best left to the imagination of the viewers. So despite my apprehension on this matter, this movie has left a lasting impression on me.
