Critic Reviews for Son of Babylon (Ibn Babil)
It's a sensitive, stoical, compassionate film with a subtle feel for the detail of everyday life in this shattered land.
Sometimes a film deserves deference. Sometimes, the only justified response is to bend one's knee. This is one of those films.
A tough, tender, hugely moving work of mourning for all those Iraqi men and women who have disappeared since the Gulf War.
Owing much to the humanist tradition of Iranian cinema, this visually striking and emotionally harrowing odyssey is played to the hilt by the non-professional cast.
Al Daradji directs with a sure hand, avoiding icy realism and chest-beating melodrama. The result is warm, human and quietly devastating.
A touching and tender road movie, although perhaps a little misty-eyed in the depiction of some of its characters.
