A breath of fresh air
15 December 2016 | by mayar_elgiushySee all my reviews

I saw this movie in Dubai international film festival and it's just fascinating. i had high hopes for this movie before i got to watch it but it turned out to be so much better than i thought it would be. everything starting from the screenplay which was very beautifully constructed to be touching and inspiring yet sick hilarious to the brilliant soundtrack which was -like the story- very delightful. also the acting was so excellent that it makes you feel involved in the story. director Sheriff Elbendary just created a beautiful piece of cinema. i loved everything about this film; the originality, the absurdity even the goat. it's definitely a must-see.
