Fantastic music and musicians and the voice of Darwish - unbelievably moving and beautiful. Personally I find the last few minutes quite harrowing, not perhaps the main thing you are seeking when buying a CD - but buy it, nonetheless!

5.0 out of 5 stars a wonderful film, 6 Feb 2010
This is one of the most powerful and moving films I have ever seen. At different moments beautiful, horrifying, charming and funny. The little girl playing the main role is amazing. The young female Afghan (?) director says something more important than all the Hollywood types put together - although that's not probably a very surprising statement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buyers Warning!!!!, 30 Dec 2009
This is a really important book. You should buy it and read it if you have any interest in the troubled state of the world at present. But DON'T buy it as well as 'On Identity' which Amazon unhelpfully suggest you buy in addition, because it's the SAME BOOK only with a different title!!!! Buy something else by Maalouf - 'The Crusades through Arab eyes' is excellent.
