Absolutely incredible film making. Devastating, brutal and all those other adjectives that describe being born into poverty in a developing country. Nadine Labaki has created a masterpiece. Zain Al Rafeea's performance is among the greatest pieces of child acting I've ever seen. Khaled Mouzanar wrote the screenplay and the score, which is beautiful. Christopher Aoun's cinematography is also on the nail. This film is superb. I hope many, many people watch it. 9.5/10

This is an incredibly hard film to review, simply because it truly puts into perspective just how useless any criticism against it is. The point of this movie is not to be a cinematic masterpiece, but to shock. And shock it does. It succeeds for almost the entirety of its runtime in showing, through the use of non-professional actors and a social-realism directing style, the hardest truths about our rotten world. It fails, however, in the target it directs its social commentary at, often feeling indecisive or lost regarding what message it is trying to convey. Labaki’s premise was the exploration of the lack of value a child’s life has in an environment like the one her film portrays, which does ultimately come through in the final product. Despite a shaky finish where most of its faults are exposed, the large majority of the film is of mandatory viewing. In the end, reviewing it is meaningless because most of us will not be fit to judge it in the slightest, and could come off as unbearably out-of-touch if we try.

Who knew that 'misery' was a genre?

I wish this film hadn't been so well made. If it'd been less well made, I might not have taken it so hard.

_Capernaum_ is a badly titled film about Zain, a 12-year-old Syrian immigrant growing up in the slums of Beirut. His parents love him More

I like Labaki. I liked this movie.
But... I dunno, there's too much emotional blackmail going on in the movie for my liking.
In terms of Child Poverty Movie Genre, this is more along the lines of Slumdog Millionaire than, say... The Bicycle Thief, to put it briefly.

Good things in the movie More

**_I wouldn't call it entertaining per se, but it's certainly provocative_**

>_I saw kids who are so neglected, so abused that there's nothing anymore in their eyes. These children don't laugh, don't cry, and don't play. If you put a toy in front of them, they don't touch it. They are just numb. More
