An Arabic tale that takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark. About ancient religious hatred, about love, punishment, guilt and redemption, about being responsible for one's own actions and refusing a path of violence. Jamil stands in the middle. He is fighting the war of his life; a war within himself.Written by
Extremely powerful and realistic portrait. The scene of revenge and repent in Sunni and Sjiit environment is played to perfection. The dialogs of the father and son are metaphoric for the decay of foregone Muslim virtues. The film is also thrilling through the up close cinematography. It is a must see for all people who are intrigued by the psychological mechanisms behind Muslim honor. Copmared to Gegen die Wand is this film the better counterpart. It does not romanticize blood revenge but displays its essence and roots. I am looking forward how the makers of this film will proceed in their work. Go with peace Jamil is a true masterpiece in documentary perspective as well as in artistic value.
