Powerful and bold!
30 May 2019 | by KaramakateSee all my reviews

What's with the downgrading, this is a terrific film! Are the viewers behind the low ratings offended by the strong female lead?

It's the first Syrian film I've seen and yes, it's quite bold to focus and depict a young woman's sexual encounters upon the Arabic Spring.

I'm quite intrigued by the breathtaking Manal Issa who plays the lead and overall the film is unpredictable and engaging.
