Clever political taunts tactfully packaged in a heartwarming romantic comedy!
My first ever Arabic language film in spite of having spent 17 years in the Middle East! Yes, a shame indeed. I am happy that my eye opener towards Arabic Cinema is a neatly made film and a pleasant surprise!
Clever political taunts come tactfully packaged within the framework of a heartwarming romantic comedy. It is surprising how Saudi passed a film that is clearly critical of their regressive society. It smartly shows mirror to Saudi's medieval practices of religion-influenced administration.
Highly recommended for World Cinema lovers!
