Capharnaum is the best movie I saw in 2018! This movie made me realize the abject poverty which exists around the world, and how love for family always shines through even in the darkest moments of life. The acting was great, and the hero of the story is a young guy who showed us how to be brave and how to push forward in life. The most important life lesson we can take from this unique movie: always appreciate what you have and never take your loved one for granted.

Labaki’s filmmaking suggests uncertainty at best and lack of confidence at worst. She layers on the suffering too thick.

Although the narrative is structured through a highly unbelievable instigating conceit — Zain is trying to sue his own parents in court for giving him life in the first place — Labaki lures such outstanding performances out of the almost entirely non-professional cast and sketches such a credible view of this wretchedly poor milieu that the flaws are mostly forgivable.

If it doesn’t tie many (or any) of these thematic strands with a neat bow, that’s in the nature of a film that chooses raw dramatic power over narrative finesse.
