A story about teens in a war torn city trying to go about their lives as if the war around them is nothing but a background scene in a painting. Only later does it down on them that the background has rushed forward, and threatens to take from them the spotlight, to overshadow their lives in ways they (and us, the audience) will never forget. A powerfully under-toned movie with a simple message, and a simple delivery that is simply outstanding.

Great movie...does a good job in depicting the political (religious) turmoil the country went (going) through

The film has a nice start. VERY NICE. Very funny with the scene in the lycee francais where they have to sing the national anthem of france and the boys goes up on the balconny and starts singing the lebanese one with a speaker. and everyone follows. But unfortunatally the movie doesnt keep the good start, but has an overall greatness!
