Political chess
10 March 2020 | by seventhriotontheshipSee all my reviews

"Fahim", in spite of the political component, is still a kind and light-reaching film. Such feature films are especially needed now, at a time when the problems of refugees and immigrants are so acute. I can't not note the unsurpassed Gérard Depardieu, who played many important roles and here, again, declared himself involved in the side of kindness and peace. Cool movie! Watch - you will not regret it!
