This is the most powerful film I've seen these last 2 years
15 March 2008 | by wum54See all my reviews

Yesterday was a real blessing here in Kalamazoo. During the Francophone Film Festival in the Western Michigan University, one of the most touching Canadian film was presented by Canadian/Lebanese director Maryanne Zehil : From my window without a home is a bright and sharp story about a Lebanese woman who balks at the pressure to be a traditional woman and leaves her four-year-old daughter to immigrate to Quebec. To deal with the pain of separation, she burns all bridges to her past. But when she meets her daughter seventeen years later, all that she has tried to forget returns with a vengeance. This talented storyteller is remarkable as much as her film.
