Beautifully done
13 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this movie!

It really shows what it is like to grow up in a Arab household and the generational gaps between family members. It also really captures the roles and expectations in modern households. Tradition is still so dominant and can cause a lot of bonding and friction.

I loved how obvious the love between family members was, despite conflicting desires. It was heartfelt and straight forward. It was very artistic, but still understandable. It's also amazing to see where it was actually filmed.

Youcan really see the love put into this film. I totally recommend it! I also like that each character was so well developed. The story really stands on its own.
