View All Critic Reviews Dec 23, Didn't go where I thought it would. And where it went wasn't interesting enough for me. Could have hit it harder Dec 31, A SENSE OF URCHIN-CY - My Review of CAPERNAUM 4 Stars We've had so many films about impoverished children, from BICYCLE THIEVES to SALAAM BOMBAY!
Call it the Street Urchin Film. The latest entry, CAPERNAUM, which roughly translates to CHAOS, comes from Lebanese director Nadine Labecki, along with her co-writers Jihad Hojeily and Michelle Keserwany and it follows Zain Zain Al Rafeea , a year-old child whose struggles as a homeless child on the streets of Beirut leads him to sue his parents for the crime of bringing him into this terrible world.
Labecki borrows from the Italian neo-realism of Vittorio De Sica yet employs a more active camera and adds a lush score such as that heard in LION.
Although imperfect in its storytelling, this winner of the Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize, packs an emotional wallop, reducing me to loud sobs at times.
CAPERNAUM uses a trial as a framing device where a singularly focused, self-possessed Zain faces off against his parents searing, passionate performances from Kawsar Al Haddad and Fadi Yousef , whose neglect and abuse of Zain and their large brood of children proves almost unbearable to witness.
Labecki herself very capably plays Zain's prosecuting attorney. We know that Zain has stabbed someone, which has led to a prison sentence for the child, but we don't yet know the particulars.
Having children affords the parents many social services they would not have otherwise, but they have no means to care for these children in the first place.
Desperate for money, they resort to such actions sending Zain to various pharmacies to amass opiates, which they grind up and soak into clothing to be sold at a local prison.
They also plan on marrying off their year-old daughter Sahar an incredible performance by Haita 'Cedra Izzaim to their landlord's lecherous son.
It's this particular event which sends Zain over the edge in a gut punch of a sequence in which he tries to escape with his sister.
