坐落在叙利亚沿海地区的艾尔瓦徳岛历史悠久,它与岛上的居民一样,似乎并不会有太多变化。对岛上的人来说(正如对本片的主人公Ali),不管你离开后的生活有多么幸福,真正的离别都是异常艰难的。导演Samer NajariDominique Chila在影片中讲述了叙利亚移民Ali、他的妻子以及他的情人之间的故事。

Ali的母亲离世后,他的情绪一度崩溃。虽然他在加拿大有着优越的工作、幸福的家庭,他仍然感觉自己是这个国家的局外人。但当他回到他故乡艾尔瓦德之后,故乡并未给予他太多慰藉。某日,他溺死在家乡的大海中,究竟是意外还是自杀,无人得知。他的妻子Gabrielle情人Marie则只能独自承担这份痛苦,Gabrielle需要一人带着两个孩子生活下去,而Marie则必须永远保存这份秘密。

作为两位导演的处女作来说,影片情感真挚并力求克制,完成度极高。电影为角色的情感传达提供了更多空间,而演员的表演也使得故事更具感染性。时而出现的由布祖基琴、吉他以及乌得琴共同演奏的配乐很好地烘托了片中那种孤独的失落之感。

The tiny island of Arwad off Syria's coast has a long history. It is one of those places that, just like its inhabitants, never seems to change. When you leave, as Ali once did, letting go is tough, however perfect your new life may seem.

Ali returns to Arwad in Syria after the death of his mother. One night, Ali mysteriously drowns at sea. Both his wife and mistress struggle: accident or suicide? Ali’s identity crisis as an immigrant only makes the quest more complex. Moving drama about loss, escape and exile.

In spite of his nice family and great job, he feels like an outsider in Canada, his new homeland. But returning to his birthplace, Arwad, doesn't offer solace either. During his stay there with Marie, Ali drowns whilst swimming at night. Was it an accident or suicide? Both Marie and Gabrielle struggle with the question, which they have to answer alone. Gabrielle has to carry on with her two daughters; Marie can't talk to anyone about Ali.

In their sincere, soberly filmed, balanced and consummate debut, directors Najari and Chila give their characters room for their emotions, convincingly played by a strong cast. The sparse, effective score of bouzouki, guitar and oud emphasises the loneliness and loss felt by all.
