This film absolutely shook me. Or actually, I should say Maya Angelou absolutely shook me, and the film brought her to me. Counting my lucky stars that I got to see this at the cinema and I just know I'll be convincing people to watch this for years to come.
Ignore the terrible poster; this is exactly as wonderfully realized and intentional and visionary as the poster isn't. (edit: it's a different poster now!) Captivating from start to finish, genuinly laugh-out-loud funny, and darkly poetic like the Grimm fairytales before they were defanged and Disneyfied. A Kurdish 'klucht' where the political is personal. Highly recommended.
