Outstanding little gem of movie
There is so much in this movie that I have no idea about. I know nothing of Muslim culture and it was really fascinating to me. Utterly charming from beginning to end and not 'over tried' or too clichéd, yet some of the moments were laugh out loud ones for me, in fact quite a few.
However, I did feel serious discomfort for the theme which can and does occur in any culture or family where children are a misconception in a parent's mind, no matter if they are loved and where pressure from what is considered 'done' can be overwhelming for young people, often at massive detriment.
Luckily, this had a happy ending and from it all, this wonderful, well acted and very entertaining movie arose which I would most certainly recommend to every Australian and anyone who loves a good romance and lesson in how we are all the same.
