Full of wry humour about their lives, their age and the foolishness of the task they have set themselves, the banter between the old mates as they face every obstacle is a total joy.

“With unfailing artistry, director Suhaib Gasmelbari captures how cinema can be essential and why these men, with their unquenchable passion and respect for one another, deserve to be feted” Variety
