A different movie-experience
20 May 2017 | by dakjetsSee all my reviews

Sometimes it's wonderful to see something different at the cinema than the usual types of movies. This movie is a good example in this way. The content of the film is generally enough; The adult son lives with an overprotected mother and is dominated by her. How to break out? How to grow up? How to make your own choices? The film raises many such questions, in an environment and setting that to me is unusual. That is in an arabic country.But there is no negative comment on my part. This makes the film absolutely extraordinary and confirms the thesis that such challenges are found everywhere. I liked the movie well, it's quite low-key in its form. The main actors are good and credible. What I'm thinking about this is: Why do not I see more of such movies? They deserve a larger audience.
