City of Life 2009

Movie Rating:

Plot

It is an urban drama that tells three stories which are connected to each other in one way or another. A rich Arab boy who invites trouble, a ballet dancer who works as an air hostess and an Indian taxi driver who dreams to become an actor.

Thoughts

The three main characters struggle with their life and they all need a push to move forward with their lives. The story that outshines everything is Sood's taxi driver life struggle which crosses every aspect of a common life. The movie is in three languages and its an insight journey to show what Dubai looks from the inside. This is a well made film from a country like UAE and looking forward to see more movies from the director. Overall, it's a decent movie from Mostafa and his directional debut makes a promising future to UAE.
