Authentic... something to be proud of.
6 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Even the film was made in the fifties, it still reflects the same situation Lebanese people are experiencing nowadays. The film is authentic, and it is technically very well done, despite the deficiencies of cinematographical materials in the making. Frankly, Lebanon is proud of that film, and George have put Lebanon on the map of the movie industry.
