| Absolutely beautiful, an EPIC. This is a must see for all
Absolutely beautiful, an EPIC. This is a must see for all. It's about history and the plight of the Palestinians and how Zionism played its part. It's a true love story that will bring smiles and tears to your eyes.

The best way to describe this movie is to compare it to Ararat. What Ararat should have been for the Armenian genocide committed by the Turks, this movie is for the Palestinians. But this movie, The Door To the Sun, is about 10 times better then Ararat and much more significant as a historical film that will not see it's equal for many years to come.

This movie is one of the best films I have seen for a very long time. From its music to it's poetry. From its scenery to it's cinematography. From its dream sequences to it's vivid portrayal of reality. It's is absolutely magnificent.

Highly recommended for all ages. DO NOT MISS THIS MOVIE
