IN SYRIA

Philippe Van Leeuw · Belgium · 2017 · 85 mins · Not Rated · Arabic with subtitles
IMDbRotten Tomatoes
A chilling, fast-moving study of a Syrian household under siege, this film brings the everyday horror home with the kind of realism associated with the most gripping war films. Belgian Philippe Van Leeuw has the entire story unfold in one day inside a spacious middle-class apartment where falling bombs keep everyone on edge and snipers pick off anyone who ventures out the door. Playing the lady of the house, Hiam Abbass delivers an edge-of-seat performance, supported by Lebanese actress Diamand Bou Abboud as a young mother who undergoes a horrible ordeal. The film underlines the courage under fire of ordinary Syrians. Even though all the violence takes place off screen, Van Leeuw pulls no punches, where the acting expresses the unspeakable horror.  --Hollywood Reporter
“A taut drama that puts a human face on Syria's humanitarian crisis.” Empire
“Visceral, immersive filmmaking.” Sight and Sound
Cast Hiam Abbass, Diamand Bou Abboud, Juliette Navis
