A deep thought on identity
13 May 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

From my window that doesn't have a home... This film has a very pertinent title. It is in fact through a window that Sana's drama evolve. She rejected Lebanon and the mother role that her society imposed upon her. Because this is the story of a woman who doesn't have a home nowhere and who is trying to forget this country that she loves after all, this country for which "one returns from everywhere to live in or to die in" (an approximative translation). Very touching film full of emotions and yet a lot of reserve. A film that questions with intelligence Identity and immigration. A must see. The main character is played by Louise Portal, magnificent actress with multiple talents.
