Teta, Alf Marra is a poetic documentary that puts a feisty Beiruti grandmother at the center of brave film exercises concocted by her grandson to commemorate her many worlds before they are erased by the passage of time and her eventual death. -- (C) Official Site

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Warmhearted and defiantly unsentimental, "Grandma, a Thousand Times" gains lightness from Teta's tart observations ... and the director's stylistic sprightliness.
It's at least enough to inspire a phone call to your own grandparents.
Teta, Alf Marra is a loving portrait of Teta's aging process, at once funny and reverent, amiable and acute.
Charming, short tribute to Lebanese filmmaker's beloved Beirut grandmother, her memories and deep-rooted values is more home movie than big-screen-worthy, but will warm up any screen.
Director Mahmoud Kaabour is Fatima's grandson, and she instantly seizes on--lightly, in her way--the guilt and panic that's inspired him to make this film.
