A drama set in a Damascus Apartment block showing contemporary living conditions and a punishing dictatorial conflict of war outside and now entering the home.
14 September 2017 | by (Belfast Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

My link http://wp.me/p2R05n-1bA to my blog review of Insyriated is here. It has a very well crafted dramatic take on war without indulging in political dirge. There are claustrophobic and surreal elements to it a bit like Under the Shadow. Holding up as a film made in Lebanon with the principals professionals the remainder of the cast are Syrian refugees. The plot is only over one day. Using a hand held camera it almost recruits you as another pair of eyes reaching into this compelling dark story.
