Cinematography wise for an Arabic movie, which I found the greatest factor in the movie, it was made by a professional, Michel Dierickx did an excellent job. The story seems to be genuine from a Middle Eastern point of view, although the dialog wasn't its great factor, which I feel in fact affected the acting roles, Ramy (Shadi Alfons) was maybe the best in acting, his script was fit his role and his character. Youssef or J (Fahad Albutairi) he maintained his amazing humor, his character was a stereotypical rich spoiled Saudi "outside the border", did a fine job in the face expressionism, as of Omar (Fadi Rifaai) I'm sadly disappointed in his acting in general, specially too much drama and sensitivity, However he did pull few time a great job of showing love.

Ali F. Mostafa is never the less is a great director, he worked on many projects including the firs Emirati film City of Life, his choices like appearances of cameo and a real American actress Madeline Zima as Samantha.

The movie had too much Hollywood inputs and technique of humor and fast paste editing, not to say it as negative, but not original. The English language in the script is a factor which i don't like in general, BUT i feel that it was actually a smart decision for two reasons. One, it will be more cheesy and lame if it were to be told in Arabic, the second and i think its the main reason, lot of sexual and inside joke that will sound very offensive, which is not in the English literature.

in conclusion, the movie point out lots of social issue and tried to express it in different point of view. lots of liberal moment and reactions. The movie showed lots of smart subtext in the story and commercially too.
