Extremely engaging, shocking, and passionate depiction of young love and the loss of innocence.

Beautifully captivating. Reminisant of youth. Poetry on film. Elegant, fierce, dreamy.

Beautiful movie, the first one that has really engaged my intellect in quite a long time. At first glance there is barely a story beyond teen agnst (if even that), but there are so many levels to analyze Lila on. Does she represent the Beautiful movie, the first one that has really engaged my intellect in quite a long time. At first glance there is barely a story beyond teen agnst (if even that), but there are so many levels to analyze Lila on. Does she represent the separation between good and evil? Is she really an angel, rewarding those who are good and excluding those who are bad. She seems to be an agent of the earth and nature but also of a higher being... her sexuality, though not even her own, is not inherently good or bad, but a representation of the female and of, paradoxically, innocence. A fantastic film. Expand

beautifuly shot but the female character is so one dimensional- she is just a temptress--even almost in the bibical sense of how so many depict women as the seducers of poor innocent men. And she pays the price of course by being raped. All beautifuly shot but the female character is so one dimensional- she is just a temptress--even almost in the bibical sense of how so many depict women as the seducers of poor innocent men. And she pays the price of course by being raped. All this could be acceptable her relentless character grew and became more real--more human-but she just remains the blond temptress.a one dimensional vison created in the mind of yet another male writer. Because I don't think a woman could or would have written a female character quite this way. Expand

Superior work in this film, with a moving end, and camera work that leaves nothing to chance, apart from maybe one's imagination. Excellent movie.. excellent execution and congratulations to Vahina and Ziad.!
