Wonderful film!
15 September 2016 | by kerensivanSee all my reviews

"Harmonia" is a wonderful film, which had left me speechless and very touched. I enjoyed watching the very famous biblical story about Abraham-Sarah and Hagar, being "transformed" in the film, into a modern-day story.

The film is very interesting and is also amazingly photographed! (Very nice colors and compositions). The film is interesting because of the fact that the modern interpretation of the biblical story deals also with the Arab- Israeli conflict - through the story of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar in a very touching, unique and gentle way.

The movie "jumps" in time as the story progresses - it is done so naturally and in an almost "un-felt" manner.
