Critics reviews

Ideological shifts occur gradually and within individuals. To illustrate them, a filmmaker all but has to work in melodrama, a genre traditionally concerned with the impact of external circumstances on individuals’ emotional lives. Nasrallah recognizes this—so, too, do his actors. The performances here are fiery, expressive, and direct. Even on my laptop, these characters seemed bigger than life.
