  • Sometimes a film deserves deference. Sometimes, the only justified response is to bend one's knee. This is one of those films.

    February 11, 2011 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • A sombre, painful, worthwhile film.

    February 10, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A tough, tender, hugely moving work of mourning for all those Iraqi men and women who have disappeared since the Gulf War.

    February 10, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Al Daradji directs with a sure hand, avoiding icy realism and chest-beating melodrama. The result is warm, human and quietly devastating.

    February 9, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A hugely rewarding cinematic experience with much to admire from the haunting music of Kad Achouri, the superb performances of Yasser Talib as the 12-year-old Ahmed and Shazada Hussein as his grandmother, and some breath-taking cinematography.
