A wonderful education for non Arabs
20 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

You don't have to be an Arab or a citizen of the United Arab Emirates to love Freej: it is the wonderful and eternal story of old folk, steeped in their traditional ways, trying to make head or tail of the modern world. Set in Dubai - which has to be the craziest, fastest-growing city in the world - Freej shows the escapades of four old Arab Ladies whose life is split between bickering, plotting, coming up with hare-brained schemes and eventually learning how to deal with the ultra-modern world in which they find themselves. You don't know whether to pity them, tut-tut at their often dishonest plots or just love their zaniness. If you are someone who knows little of the Arabian Gulf region or have been misled by what is often written about it, just sit back and watch the ladies of Freej and while you are laughing, pause to learn a little bit about their history and rich culture
