An effective story, convincing. compelling and poignant performances. Salma y Adrien shine. Good narrative rhythm, true ambiance of the time,and the right tone to communicate the feeling of despair and helplessness. I confess that I ignored the anecdote. A picture both, an epic and lyric. Absolutely recommendable for audiences of all ages. Salma reminded me a couple of friends from Iraq and Iran that I met in New York 20 years ago. Sometimes the universal history of our people is advancing so fast that many important episodes go unnoticed. this is another of the levels at which impacts this movie, and the cinema in general.
