Filmed over 5 years, A Syrian Love Story charts an incredible odyssey to political freedom. For Raghda and Amer, it is a journey of hope, dreams and despair: for the revolution, their homeland and each other.
If you are interested in the arts, and specifically Ballet then you will find this fascinating. The intrigue, the jealousy, the drama, the pain and struggle. It makes football look tame.
I have some exposure to Ballet, as an audience member, but also I had a roommate for four years who danced in a German company. I spent some time back stage standing and watching performances up close. There was a lot of romantic triangles, drama, jealousy, injury, favoritism, and perpetual competition for roles. I was a singer and opera was intense but nothing is as competitive as ballet and their careers are so short.
I highly recommend this documentary.
