Kahlil Gibran, on whose work this film is based, was born in Lebanon. While a young teenager, his family immigrated to NewYork City. He attended university in Paris, and eventually returned to the U.S., where he lived the rest of his life. He was never imprisoned, like the poet, Mustafa, in this film. See more »

A great film with visually astounding animation

I was curious about this film, after I had watched the trailer online, and I was fortunate to find it on Netflix. I thought it was a visually astounding movie, and I was glad that there was a chance for 2D animation in 2014, when it comes to animated movies.

The film's story is about an exiled poet/artist named Mustafa and his relationship with a struggling widow (and his housekeeper) Kamila and her mute daughter Almitra. The film is also about the impact Mustafa's words had on the townspeople, but the town's militant government thinks those words are seditious...stupid!

I thought the casting was excellent with Liam Neeson, Salma Hayek and Frank Langella. I don't have any particular scene I like, because I love it from beginning to end. So like I had said this film visually astounding with great animation.
