One of the Best films i have seen this year ( 2008)
i have watched this film, during Cairo's film festival for year 2008 it was very hard to get in and see it because there was a huge crowd trying to watch it anyway i struggled and i got in and it was really worth it the story,so natural,the acting ..the scenery..the whole thing brought tears into my eyes and OR eally wished this film wouldn't end.. then i met with the actress and the director, whom informed us that the film was shot in real location by real people,even soldiers ..etc and they struggled and went through hardship in-order to bring this film into light with their own budget i encourage all of you to go and watch it or rent it..it is worth it and portrays a vivid image of the situation in the occupied lands.. well done
