Through his eye-witnessed death of a friend, Nimer knows he can't oblige. Can love find a way through this no-win situation?Written by
The story speaks to the very "realness" of the complexities of the human condition.
Here, we have a most believable plot of two men meeting casually - and having the biggest possible outcome on their lives. The part of "Roy" is played expertly to "Nimer" and I just love how the twists and turns of the delicate situation they find themselves in, empowers, ultimately (without giving it away) a difficult situation.
However, I enjoy that the end result is left largely unresolved allowing for your own imagination's participation. This means that the "effect" of the film stays with you for a while. It has also, in my opinion, humanised an otherwise impossible scenario in the Middle East and asks that age old question (if not entirely answers it), at what cost, love?
I'm a fan! I highly recommend this movie whether you're gay or not you'll find something in the very human story that will resonate with you.
