A very simple story. The admirable performance of Marwan Kaabour. The Syrian crisis in the fair, touching light. And the other as reflection of yourself , surprising, powerful, precise. A great film for its suggestion to see the near reality out of comfortable perspective. Well made, giving the honest message about a necessary clash, home, language and music. About parents, hope and faith. And about identity, the correct one. So, just impressive , first for its well used minimalism and for beautiful construction of dialogue.
