Quite inspiring that a non-American inspired film won so much awards.

It's so much a reality that some of us may not even be aware, put in a blunt movie plot artistically.

Seemingly leading the main character, Jamal, into where he was meant to be at that time, unfolding series of events that are intertwined and related. All but in a subtle way. Very interesting. Keeps your hands sweaty throughout, thinking what will happen. Not the typical movie we are used to seeing. Heavy artistic drama. Very recommended for a movie night. Kudos to the director and cast.
