Winner of the "Golden Dagger" for Best Picture at the 2006 Muscat Film Festival.
A handful of shifting, ephemeral stories of quests begins with a blind dervish and his granddaughter burrowing out from a sandstorm. A gazelle leads a prince to meditate, and a psalmodist sings for his lost lover. A deeply spiritual and mystical epiphany of music, love, dance and color. ‘Oh day, arise! The atoms are dancing.’
First of all, the girl is at the betrothal age, second of all her face wouldn't be showing. Third of all she wouldn't be talking.
So satisfying, this feast for the soul. It touched me deeply - words don't serve to express its beauty.
A sufi's journey into eternity. I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Khemir in Damascus in 2010. We shared our love for Sufism and discussed Ibn Arabi and Rumi on a wonderful afternoon. Mr. Khemir's talent is evident in this film and all his masterpieces. I recommend this film to all who are seeking answers to this life and the one after.
Truly Loved and enjoyed it
Simply beautiful and magical.
