In Syria (Insyriated) Photos

Movie Info

Damascus. The war is on the street. The apartment has become a sort of bunker where everything is organised depending on poverty. Every day is just a struggle to survive until tomorrow. The men are gone, only the women and the elderly are left. But some other men appear. Everyone retreats to the kitchen. Everyone except one young woman, alone on the other side of the door.

Critic Reviews for In Syria (Insyriated)

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (5)

  • "In Syria" is a finely made film - brisk, well-acted and filled with tension and mean twists. But it's also a wake-up call and a cry for help.

  • It can sometimes feel like 'Insyriated' is awkwardly carrying the weight of an entire complicated conflict on its shoulders - but its sense of claustrophobia and immediacy can also feel horribly convincing.

  • There is something almost unbearable in this film's tension and claustrophobia, a brutally tough drama from writer-director Philippe Van Leeuw.

  • Gripping from start to finish.

  • Like a Holocaust script that aims for sentiment and phony realism, the results reduce the tragedy to cheap TV-movie tricks.

  • ...the real horror of war is not found in the bloodletting of combat... but in the individualized toll it takes on simple people - human beings reduced to their basest survival instincts...
