This is very well done and representative of the culture, I presume, in Jordan, where this was made. The young barber and the old man are stylized in such a way as you get a glimpse of where they are both coming from. The camera work suits the story without being too imaginative. The audio is clear, although the radio playing in the background is a bit distracting it does represent the barbershop environment. I think it is good for youth and families to experience what life is like in other countries and get a glimpse of their culture, in as simple a thing as going to the barber shop. The unlikely friendship between the old man and the younger barber is charming and realistic. Recommended for teens, age 13 to 18, plus adults and I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST! juror.
An old man in his sixties forms an unlikely bond with his young barber. Tensions begin to rise between them as they defend their respective generations.
