This film tackles several issues that women in our Arab society are still suffering from. The film’s script is full of details that reflect the director’s apt knowledge of women and the worlds they live in, resulting in vivid and vibrant characters. — Ola El-Shafie, ElWatan Website (Arabic)
Zaid Abu Hamdan made a bold film on the taboos that women suffer from—a topic that filmmakers, especially in the Levant region, hardly dare to address. — Malek Khouri, Kitabat (Arabic)
Great! One of the best movies out there! Everything from A to Z! Its a must watch. It shows reality in some Arab countries—in their alleys and how society really is. Professional actors. They made this movie so real and very touching! Way to go, Jordan. So proud.
