A gentle comedy with a sharp bite
20 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

What a fantastic film I discovered recently. I cant believe that I didn't see it before. Daayen ya Baayen is full of subtle humor, nuances, wonderful characters and such a lovely story line. The story seems simple but it is quite complex. It is about a guy going back from the city to the village and finding that not much has changed back here. He finds his raison d'etre in building an art school in he village. But a red car arrives in his life and takes him on a different trip. The story is about this and a lot more - its a life lesson. I can see it again and again for the many nuances and hidden gems all over the film. I enjoyed it and recommend it to everyone who want to see something out of the ordinary.
