This is by far one of the best movies to hit the theaters this year! I went in with only a basic knowledge of the premise, and I was truly impressed afterwards. The cinematography is superb. The war scenes in Syria really grab you by the throat and are visually stunning! The three main characters nail their part. Special shout out to Aboubakr Bensaihi for portraying such a difficult role with so much human heart. The soundtrack really adds to the atmosphere too. The only thing I disliked were the 'musical' moments, however there were done correctly in the setting and tone, but the epilogue kind of took away the shine of the climax.. I am also affraid this will pass under many people's radar, which is a shame because production value wise this looks straight up Hollywood, but the story will not appeal to mainstream US moviegoers. IF you read this review because you are in doubt, go and watch this NOW. It's nice to see movies from a different perspective as usual. You will not be disappointed! 9/10 highly recommended.
