In the beginning there was Nawaf al Janahi...
Nishad Hussain Kaippally13 January 2007
I saw this film during the India Arab Cultural Festival held in the Kerala Social Centre.

The film highlights loneliness experienced by today's urban youth. Although the film was shot in various parts of the United Arab Emirates, it has managed to maintain the generic nature of the city. This could be any city in the world. It can be any young man of any background.

What is depicted in this film is the indifference of the environment he lives through.

There are some great photographic moments. Most of the film is in high contrast wide angle perspectives. Although the movie does not have any dialogues, it speaks volumes about the rapid urbanization and loss of the neighbourhood friendliness that once existed in many similar cities.

Worth a watch. A grand beginning for young film makers in the UAE.
