| Funny but Thought Provoking Film!
Hats off to the director Pippo. It is a challenge to make a film on a lonely person in a devastated town and make it engaging and intriguing.

The best thing about any good film is that it works as a whole. It is very difficult to point out any component which is extraordinary. Every department in this film works in full tandem to make a great film. Everything in this film, writing, direction, casting, cinematography, editing, sound design, costume, production design etc. is just apt for the film. That's why the film has such a big impact.

It leaves us wondering about our very existence. Migration has been the backbone of our existence as human being. Man has been a migrant since stone age. Today when the world has become a global village, this film questions the very idea of leaving a place where you have lived your entire life. when we leave a place not only we leave its geography, we also leave behind the memories attached to it.

But at the same time, this film shows Noor, a migrant travelling from Syria to France. And the hero of the film who is not leaving his home despite it becoming a ruin helps her to reach France.

This irony makes the film so beautiful.
