A sad pile of rubbish!

This movie tries to impart a message but it's one that probably only the writers and producers understand. The script is as amateurish as is the acting. The movie goes along at a slow pace and is a total waste of time. It's always amazing that movies like this are even allowed to be streamed to a global audience.

So so

Josef Fares has some talent. No doubt about that. But I'm sorry to say that this is in fact his worst picture so far, out of the three he has done. It starts in Beirut in 1987. A family is emigrating, but the war kills everybody except for the little boy, Zozo. He gets alone to Sweden there he meets his grandparents. There are problems in this new environment. It could have been good, but the movie has some difficulty in deciding whether it's for children or grown-ups. The story has no real end. It feels like "Oh now, we have already too much material. We must cut". What starts as a drama about post-war feelings, which could have been interesting, becomes just another plain story, there it's too easy to say what will happen the next minute. Fares has talent to make a better movie.

Loud explosions will keep you from falling asleep

I saw this film at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and it's director Josef Fares introduced the film and took Q&A after. This really looks like a film not a movie. It has great cinematography and sound and music. Elias Gergi as the grandfather is outstanding and it's a great role. Imad Creidi in the title role of Zozo is very good. I could do without the chicken however. There very few other characters of interest in this film. Zozo's survival and how he made his way to Sweden from Lebanon seemed a little far-fetched. I felt the script was a little weak. This movie had some great production value to it but it wasn't enough to carry it beyond good to the excellent level and was no where near being superb. I would give this a 6.5 on a scale of 10 but I wouldn't see it twice.
