Bu Ali Narrative one of Hope
21 December 2014 | by m-alobaidleySee all my reviews

This is a dazzling visual novel and the most distinguishing feature about this film is that it is breaking the traditional narrative traditions in the Gulf cinema, but very smoothly. Away from the traditional Simple causality logic, the scenario apparently overlapping of times by mixing reality with fiction reflecting the lasting swung between reality and hope. As usual, the director Mohammed Bu Ali hold the thread of his narrative seamlessly pushing us to hold our breaths until the last scene. Bu Ali managed competently an overflowing bitterness story from his childhood to a tale of hope by ending up the log journey of desperation of his hero at the place which symbolize a miracle: "Tree of Life", the tree that grew on a small plateau in the desert of Bahrain and remained lush until today since more than 400 years.
