The director, Josef Fares, have casted his own relatives in "Zozo", as he has done in other films. We see Abdulahad Fares as Rita's dad and hear Fares Fares (Josefs brother) as the voice of the chicken. See more »
One of the strongest movies I've seen.
The story of a boy who's living in Beirut during the war, He and his family are waiting for their papers in order to leave Lebanon and seek refuge in Sweden.... The horrors of war and the way it affects civilians is shown in this movie and it won't leave you untouched. But even in the most serious situations there is room for jokes and you will alternate between crying and laughing.
This is one of the strongest movies I've seen! I've never admired any director or even known that they were alive until yesterday when I saw Zozo. With three great movies (this one is the best) Joseph Fares has shown that he truly masters the art of telling a story.
I sincerely hope this movie is translated into English and other languages and if it doesn't get nominated for best foreign movie something is not right.
Don't miss this movie!
