Visual Storytelling at it's best.
16 May 2012 | by (Lebanon) – See all my reviews

Choosing to see Tannoura Maxi is one of the easiest choices there is to make, if you are as crazy as I am about Visual Storytelling.

Nowadays, there is so much emphasis on verbal communication in modern cinema; the audience has lost their ability to indulge in beautiful visual communication, where the story unfolds in front of your eyes rather than inside your ears.

There is much to say about the well composed film that takes a rather daring step towards projecting the essence of chemistry, and love between two people.

The film explores the undying tension, the untamed desire, and the seduction that draws from lust, in a time of war, pain, and grief.

It was quite a surprise going inside every character's persona in that personal way, where the audience feels much like a trespasser inside a person's head, hearing about their inmost flaws, wants, and needs. It elevates the movie into becoming somewhat of a private diary, unveiling itself slowly as the movie gradually comes to an end; where you finally find yourself relating towards this character rather than that, or the other rather than this; that's how personal it gets.

The music was as beautiful as the breathtaking images that resemble hand drawn memories.

The sound design was well crafted, and the era which the film took place was loyal to what it represents.

All and All, I'd say the movie sends me off to two places. One, it certainly takes me to a place of warmth, love, and struggle. Two, it takes me into the deviated mind of a curious little boy, who had the love to make some of the images inside his head for the public to see.

And my mom always wore heals too, even when going to get water from the well.
