Candid and humorous view upon romance in Saudi Arabia
24 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I loved this movie. I started watching it full of unknown prejudices. I was not expecting it to be so bold in criticizing certain aspects of modern Saudi society, or so romantic and humorous. It fits the bill perfectly for its genre: It has romance and humour. Quite a lovely film to watch.
