5/5

Review

Anna Fahr‘s poignant drama unfolds in rural Lebanon, exploring the complexities of refugee life through the innocent lens of two children, Sajed Amer as Saad and Sanaa Amer as Nada, who, having fled conflict in Palestine, encounter Syrian refugee Mohammed (Jalal Altawil). The film eloquently captures the hardships faced by refugees in Lebanon, portraying the economic crisis and societal challenges, while highlighting the common thread that binds the characters as individuals seeking sanctuary.

Jalal Altawil’s portrayal of Mohammed, navigating the difficulties of being a Syrian refugee, is complemented by the endearing behavior of the Palestinian children, offering a glimmer of hope in the face of adversity. Bassem Fayad’s cinematography masterfully captures the rugged mountain landscape, enhancing the visual experience and adding depth to the narrative.

The film’s well-structured storytelling and exceptional acting, particularly from young talent Sajed Amer, contribute to its emotional resonance. Fahr seamlessly weaves together themes of displacement, resilience, and the enduring human spirit, delivering a touching tale that sheds light on the challenges faced by those forced to flee their homelands.

Overall, the film stands as a moving exploration of the refugee experience, showcasing both the struggles and the potential for hope in an unfamiliar land.
