Ariel_'s rating of the film My Country, My Country

Very instructive in its depiction of the complex reality of ethnic and political conflict in Iraq. Depicts American occupation itself as clear factor with Iraq’s political fragmentation. Throughout the film, Dr. Ryadh’s life is punctuated by rocket blasts. Communities are beset with terrorist attacks and factionalist violence, making it difficult for peaceful candidates like Dr. Riyadh to work an effective campaign.
