    Just sit back and take in what this piece of cinema serves you. It's beautiful, sad, devastating and overwhelming at times. Do not watch this with the mindset as you would watch any other movie. I even hesitate to call this a movie, since it slowly morphs into much more than that, as it goes.

    A foreign emotional experience that provides visual taste where you would not have expected. A heart-breaking, heart-warming story that truly hits where it intends to.

    While this was not a happy film by any means I think it was one worth watching. Some may find the mechanisms driving the plot action to be too narrow or unrevealing with regard to the issues being confronted in this film as they pertain to Lebanon today, but I tried to remember I was seeing the world through 12 yr old Zain's eyes, which probably lack the geopolitical, imperialistic, or socioeconomic lenses many who view this film will possess. Young Zain was amazing in his role and made this worth watching for his performance, if for nothing else.
