I was so looking forward to this product arriving and saved it for a special occasion to watch. What a disappointment. Both my husband and I hated it and we found it difficult to watch to the end. It was hard to associate this travesty with the classic novel by Leo Tolstoy. The theatre theme was just plain weird, and instead of passion and tragedy it was more like a comedy. Absolutely awful and a waste of money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 21 Feb 2007
I purchased this book hoping to gain new insights into Saddam the man but was left disappointed. It is a disjointed and tedious read that didn't tell me anything I didn't already know about Saddam's brutal regime. I recommend anyone wanting to gain a real insight into Saddam Hussein and Iraq to read the vastly superior book by Con Coughlin.

This is a beautifully shot and emotionally powerful film. It is a film that deserved to be made to make us all aware of the invisible people of large cities all over the world. The film is almost like a documentary of the drudgery of Ahmads' life. You long for him to escape his sadness and the monotony of his existence. At times this film is almost too much to bear and leaves you with little hope for Ahmad, whose former life really remains a mystery. This film left me with a raw feeling inside and will stay with me. I defy anyone to be left unmoved.
