Ayoub Elsari carrying a generic film student's film.
13 March 2019 | by zkikoSee all my reviews

An unimaginative movie..weak storyline. Ayoub Elsari is carrying this movie completely on his own. Without him this movie would be completely void. So generic and such lack of imagination. This is what happen when nugatory suburban directors/writers lack imagination and just decide to make a make a movie about inner city youth. (or anything else for that matter) Most times it's a miss, and also makes for certain ridiculous directing/casting.(for instance the older 'thug' guys from the neighbourhood were 30+. which felt laughably fake. Also what they were presented to be.) Ridiculous and seems to happen a lot in Dutch movies. Anyway..if you watch this, do it for the natural acting of Ayoub Elsari..also some nice visuals here and there.
