A concise and memorable film, where nothing is reiterative, which had a flawless script, masterful performances and superb direction both behind the scenes of Bouhareb Rachid.

This movie makes you think...a lot. Well written & acted, just slow on the uptake-keep with it, you'll be rewarded in the end.
A beautiful depiction of a father and a mother, trying to understand the world their kids live(d) in, in horrible circumstances.
Bigger message is that with lots of things trying to tear us apart, our humanity keeps us together. In fact we don't have a choice but to understand each other and live together.
