Watched this awhile back and recalled a cloak and dagger plot mashed in a missing Canadian citizen in Damascus. Some interesting moments on the Syria's politics and nepotism decades ago to the present. However, the events seemed to be read by actors and not shown to viewers. The ending was incidentally and ... "O, Okay then."

Skip it. Many parts of the movie do not make sense. Marisa's character in the movie is redundant. The daughter's actions are naive and stupid.

Not a bad movie considering what it was.

The main character was well acted and along with good supporting actors, created a suspenseful story amid the political intrigue of the Middle East.

Sayid: A foreign photographer talking to a student activist... taking photos. When our people discovered who her father was, the Prophet himself couldn't have convinced them she wasn't a spy.

FatimaL Why do Arab men do that? Marry the first blonde woman that they meet in the West?
Adib: She's a brunette.
