Though not without first film flaws, this echt-Lebanese drama intriguingly delves into the innumerable layers of deceit and willful amnesia that originated in the civil war but continue to straightjacket the nation's psyche.

Compelling because of the dignified performance of visually impaired musician Barakat Jabbour in the lead.

If you're no expert on Lebanon, the film's contemplations are all the more educational.

The performances are careworn and convincing, and the film is never less than compelling.

September 22, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

[An] interesting and distinctive if undeveloped feature debut, a kind of road-movie mystery.

September 22, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Overall, the narrative lacks focus, though a musical number that stretches out over nine minutes provides a cathartic, if slightly clunky, conclusion.
