Inheritance by Hiam Abbass

Inheritance by Hiam Abbass
Inheritance by Hiam Abbass
The structure of family saga propels Hiam Abbass' characters into the tradition of the great European bourgeois novel, rather than into an Arabic narrative. The slow uncovering of each person's failings and miseries, the fragility of the arrogant and the generosity of the little people, are reminiscent of a rural version of Padrino. But if you look up and listen carefully, there is an omnipresent sound which turns this film into an apology halfway between classic storytelling and historical reality: it is the sound of war. Aeroplanes and helicopters, missiles mid-air or rockets in search of a prey… These are the evidence of a threat which spares no one. To this extent, Inheritance is a unique film, in a unique land, dedicated to unique people. (Giorgio Gosetti)
