I went to see this movie during the Dubai international film festival and was a little bit worry, because it is originally in french and I have never liked french movies. I chose to sit in a place where I can leave whenever I want to, if I am bored during the film. But, when the light went of, I was totally taken by this wonderful story, so emotional and so true, and I felt, at one point, that it was my own life projected on the screen. When the film was over, the producer was there and she answered with a lot of respect and awareness, all the questions that were asked to her (she is Lebanese and Canadian and very young!). Then I have realized that this film was not only the story of my life, but as well the story of each and every Arab woman... Thank you for such a wonderful film made out of a lot of sensibility, conscience and sadness, but still a lot of hope... CONGRATULATIONS
