Maguy Bou Ghosen,
I bought the ticket for this movie with very low expectations, but God was I wrong!
Soon after the opening scene, I realized that this was no ordinary movie. It's different from any other I've seen... and in so many ways: the mind-blowing messages; the brilliant blending of poetry, music, painting, and animation; and the way it propels one's imagination up to an entirely new level, all the time staying true to the soul of Khalil Gibran's artistic genius.
I highly recommend this exceptional movie to everyone who loves life and appreciates art in all its forms. Being a sensual mind opener, this masterpiece succeeds at making the viewer not only enjoy it, but enjoy existence as a whole too.
Hats off to Salma Hayek, Liam Neeson, Gabriel Yared, and of course Roger Allers.
If you are tired of all the pretentious movies out there, don't miss out on this simple one. After all, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, right?
9/10 (being the 'stingy with the grades' reviewer that I am)
