What the critics say:

 “In capturing these unguarded moments, Benchekroun and Mermer provide distinctly personal snapshots that offer telling glimpses of the bigger picture.”
Montreal Gazette

 “It’s overwhelming! (…) Basically it is the state of the world, through the people you would see for ten seconds on the evening news, but here, you get to know them.” (translated from French)
Ici Radio Canada

 “The cinema suddenly resides in History, making the voices of the exiles more essential than ever, emotion-filled memories that stay with you when you leave the theatre.” (translated from French)
24 images

 “A powerful documentary.” (translated from French)

 “essential and painfully current.” (translated from French)
