Storyline

Marie, a Canadian editor specialized in testimonies of Genocide survivors, starts to receive anonymous large envelopes with the narrative of Ali, a young Palestinian who grew up in a refugee camp in Lebanon. Intrigued, Marie investigates the origin of these envelopes and finds out who is the anonymous writer. This is how she establishes a connection with Joseph, a Lebanese worker hired to paint the offices. A strange relation develops between these two persons who come from very different worlds. But after a while, Joseph abruptly disappears and Marie, overwhelmed by the mission fallen on her, starts a journey into the past, through a small village in Lebanon, in the heart of a bloodthirsty culture were lies the key of all the enigmas. Written by Maryanne Zehil

14 March 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is an original script. It's about a boy who survived the Sabra and Chatila massacres in Lebanon back in 1982. Now he wants his testimony to be published anonymously. He meets with a Canadian publisher and starts telling his story. It is terrifying! I imagine middle age reviewers will not particularly like this movie, though older and intellectual ones will most likely love it. But it's a film about 2 lonely souls even if it talks about redemption, self-sacrifice and hopeful future. It's directed by Maryanne Zéhil, a Canadian/Lebanese woman (which explains the great knowledge of both cultures.) It's beautifully crafted (gorgeous cinematography) and has intelligent dialogues and storytelling. The performances are all around great. Nathalie Coupal is amazing, however, the film probably won't get a large enough release to be on the radar because of unknown cast and French dialogues. Of course, setting the movie in Lebanon (in Canada too) means one of the main character is the location. Beautiful country that may change the way we imagine the Middle-East.

I liked this film.
