Critic Reviews for A World Not Ours
Although not a perfect film, "A World Not Ours" does turn faceless statistics about the plight of refugees into an immediate human tragedy.
This affecting, humor-tinged debut feature from Mahdi Fleifel goes back to the old neighborhood in southern Lebanon: the refugee camp Ain al-Helweh, a Palestinian pocket of hemmed-in buildings and stifled hopes.
Fleifel gathers the messy detritus of everyday living, laughs at it, then shows the viewer what it means.
In this heartfelt film, Fleifel shows us the human cost of the conflict.
Probably the only good thing to come out of the Palestinian dispossession is a long list of great films, and this is one of the greatest among them.
Audience Reviews for A World Not Ours
A return to a refugee camp that the film maker grew up in shines a light on an unfortunate temporary situation that becomes permanent and how people adapt to that type of living. People spend their entire lives being trapped by circumstances.
