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.

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.

I like so much
8 December 2012 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

The relationship between the Canadian woman and the Lebanese man is a so gentle and so delicate. The director succeed in creating Arab character that is so very different from what usually show us. This is how I know my husband, gentle and kind. I also was very impressed by the subject the director have decide to tell because she is not afraid of the film she did and she is very open to talk about why and how. Like Farid I am totally find it courageous because she is Christian and talk about Sabra and Chatila. May God be on her side for all her coming films. Where can I find her first film? The Valley of Tears is gouing to be release in Egypt? I will be happy to recommend it.
