Syrian filmmaker Feras Fayyad in collaboration with Aleppo Media Center filmed the Syrian war for two years, which led to this breathtaking work, an imperative piece of boots-on-the-ground reportage following the exploits of the White Helmets, a search and rescue organization who indefatigably struggle on amidst Aleppo's humanitarian catastrophe.

When I went to the cinema to see this movie I was not sure what to expect. It looked like a typical war movie with lots of explosions and blood. The trailer was even more optimistic. But what I got from this movie was that it really was a heartwarming, human and inspiring story about how one person can change the world for the better. It was a journey that some of us will never forget. The movie is based on the true story of Bilal and Ammar. The two friends from Aleppo were victims of the war, but they managed to give their hearts and souls to the cause. It is the story of their stories, the struggle they went through, the determination they had and the realisation of what they have done for the country. It is a very powerful movie. It is about how the war affected our life, our values, our hopes and dreams. And how they managed to change the country for the better. This movie is so true and inspiring. It has a great message and a great message for our generation. This is a very good movie and one of the best I have ever seen. 10/10

The result of the war on Aleppo is a terrifying, desolate and apocalyptic landscape. Some children have been evacuated from the city and others have been killed. It's not clear why Aleppo is being targeted in particular, although there is the idea of ISIL/Daesh, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, taking advantage of the war. The documentary doesn't tell us the reason for the war but it does look at the historical context of the conflict. Many children have been killed or injured. It's quite difficult to determine the exact number of deaths and the number of children displaced, especially since many people are in the city in refugee camps. The images of the war are very powerful. Some of the shots are haunting, especially the images of the children fighting, the fighting of the men, the soldiers, the shots of the bodies lying in the street. It's hard to explain the war in a simple way. The conflict started as an uprising against the Assad regime, which has changed since. The conflict began in Aleppo, in the north of Syria. As the war began, people tried to flee to Turkey, to Turkey was very difficult. There were almost no roads that were open. The people had to smuggle their goods on foot, at night, and all the roads were closed. So the people had to go through the mountainous areas of Syria. They had to walk, and walk at night. The landscape is very beautiful. There are a lot of different types of landscapes. There are the flat areas, the hills, and the mountains. It's very dramatic. It's very moving. The people's fear is very real. It is very, very frightening. This is a very dangerous situation. There is not enough information being given out about the war and the situation. It's a very real situation. This is a very, very powerful documentary. I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to know what is going on in Syria.

One of the most popular TV documentaries of the year, Syria is a city torn apart by conflict and violence. The Lebanese army has been besieging the city since the summer of 2012, leaving millions of Syrians homeless and hungry. The city was considered the poorest in the world until an aid convoy arrived in March 2014. The story of the relief effort has become a global story and has a variety of voices who have interviewed ordinary people who have lost their homes, friends, or loved ones. The issues that they discuss are tragic, but also offer hope and humanity. There are long, passionate scenes of interviews with friends and family members of those who have lost family members to violence. One young girl from the city who lost her father to an airstrike and her mother who was shot dead, describes her yearning for her father to come home. There is an interview with an elderly man who lost his wife and son to a sniper attack. He is a member of the Syrian National Coalition, the exiled opposition group who helped to organize the aid convoy. And a young girl from the city who lost her family to a bomb has a wonderful story of how her home was destroyed and how she's searching for her father. All in all, Syria is a story of hope and humanity. This is the story of a nation that was expected to be one of the richest in the world. Instead, it is now a country that has become a country that is desperate for life. If you have not seen this film, you are not alone. The need for help is very real. If you can help, please do. If you can't, don't feel guilty. This is your story. Please, help.

I've watched this documentary for the second time and really liked it. It's mostly good-looking footage, a little slow at times but still a great presentation of the subject and the people involved. The problem with some of the imagery is that some of the background is blurred to make it look like it's being filmed in Syria or Iraq. This isn't always a problem, but it can make it look like it's being shot in the Middle East, when in reality it's being filmed in Canada. This makes the point of the documentary that the topic is so complex that it's hard to find good-looking footage from any country. For example, I could have shown you more recent footage from Syria showing the violence, but it would have been very hard to show what happened to people during that time. It's hard to find good-looking footage from other countries because people are scared of being filmed in war zones, which is another problem. I really hope more people will see this documentary because it really highlights the importance of this issue and how much it affects people's lives. It's a good documentary for people who don't want to think too hard about the topic and just want to watch some good looking footage. You should really give this a chance, because it is pretty well-done. This is one of those documentaries that you'll probably enjoy watching over and over again.

I was very excited to see this movie. I had read the book before and knew that it would be good. I had also heard from a couple of people that this movie is very similar to "The Night We Called it Night". But I was very surprised that this movie was so different. I think this movie did a great job of giving a realistic feel to the war. The movie wasn't a documentary, it was more like a documentary than a movie. I think this was a very interesting and important part of the war that was never discussed. It was all about families and the lack of communication. The movie gives the viewer a different perspective of what happened in Aleppo and how that affected those families. It also gives a perspective on how the families are now. I think it was very good. It was very depressing at times and I didn't feel the connection to the other characters. I think if you don't have a background in the war, you might not like the movie. If you do have a background in the war and know that it was very serious, it will still be very sad. The movie is not as much of a tear jerker as "The Night We Called it Night" was. It is not a war movie, it is more about a war. It is definitely worth watching, if you are a fan of war and don't want to see it again.

I would just like to say that what i have seen in the movie, is a one of a kind and the director did a brilliant job in showing it. Not a huge movie, but a very powerful one. I don't know why I didn't see it sooner. I liked it even more when i realized that there is more to the subject and more to the story than i expected. I think that the movie really should have been released more often. I would like to see a director like him make more movies like this. It really is a great movie, one of a kind and if you really get the chance, go and see it. 8/10

I was sent to the Aleppo and airdrop to help evacuate civilians. I returned to find the streets littered with bodies, my beloved Aleppo. I was devastated, and I wanted to go back there to help. I have a little more information about this case. I have been following the lives of the residents of Aleppo over the past year. I became very close to the Syrian people. I am an American, but I know all too well how Syria is. I also had a very good understanding of the difficulties of doing this type of work. I felt that my duty was to help those who were not involved in the evacuations, because I know how difficult it is to do something that can hurt so many. I also felt that there was an obligation to use my time well. As I look back, I realize that my duty was to bring this story to the world. I do not feel that it was the right thing to do. But I did. I did so for the truth. I did so to tell the world the truth about what happened in Syria. The truth is that the Syrians are being killed in large numbers. What is more important is to bring attention to the war crimes committed by the Syrian government and the extremist groups. I feel that we have the responsibility to tell the world the truth. We can do this. I am not against helping the people of Aleppo. I know that they need help. But what is more important is to bring attention to the facts and to bring the truth to the world. My name is Lori Anne Hodges, and I am a documentary filmmaker. I am also a British citizen. I am a graduate of the California Institute of the Arts. I have been a documentary film director for over 20 years. I have directed over 30 films. I have always been an independent filmmaker. I have not had a major studio deal for any of my films. My films have always been independent, and produced for no profit. I have always wanted to be a filmmaker. I have always worked with small budgets. I have always had my eyes and ears open, and I have always been on the ground. I have had to go through war zones to get the story. I have been there to document the horrors. I have made my films on my own. I have always had my film. This film is about an American woman, Alice Williams, who was working in Syria, and she needed to go back to America to be with her husband. She was a videographer. When the Syrian government was attacking the people of Aleppo, she was a witness to the destruction. She stayed to document. When the war came, she was in Aleppo, helping with the people's evacuation. This film is about the Aleppo incident, and the people who were helping with the evacuation. It is a very well made film. The performances were very good. The editing was well done. The sound was very good. The filming was very good. The film was produced with the help of the Syrian people. The Syrian people did not want the film to be made. I am so glad that they were able to make the film. I wish that the government of Syria could have been able to help me with the film. We would have made a really good film. Thank you to everyone who helped with the production of this film. The film is

I'm not a war-nerd, but I do know that I am not a war-nerd, and when I first saw this movie, I wasn't a war-nerd either. The movie portrayed a hard life for Syrian children in a terrorist-held city. Even with the horrifying images of the conflict in Syria, the story was surprisingly positive. The stories of some of the kids in this movie are heartbreaking, but the message of this movie is that even the most horrible things that happen to children are not what you would call scary, because they are actually good, because they remind us of what we would like to do. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves to see documentaries. It's also a great film for those who want to learn about the many different ways to show support for children in war-torn areas. I hope everyone who sees this movie will learn from it, and think about what they can do to help the children in Syria. 8/10

A new film is being released every week by the British government. Not many films from the west are so full of itself that they are unable to do their job effectively. This film is called "Anatomy of a Nightmare" and is a documentary. The film is made with a very high budget and a very high profile. The film is very boring and not interesting. The characters are the most annoying thing in the movie. Some of them talk to each other like they're in a long distance conversation. It's so uninteresting and there are no interesting things in the film. There is a scene in the film where a kid runs away and asks a Russian man where his family is. I don't know how it has been shown but it's not an interesting scene. You know that scene is boring because it never gets better. There are some good things in the film like the one with the boy who can only speak Russian. That is one of the most important things in the film. The movie is also very good at showing a lot of violence. You know that there are also some good things in the film. The camera work is good. The atmosphere is great. The music is also very good. The only reason why the movie is boring is that it has not interesting characters. It's only interesting when there are war scenes. The acting in this film is not really bad. But, it's not really good either. The movie has one of the worst scripts in a documentary film. It is not good. You might say that there are some very good things about the film but the only good things are the camera work and the music. There is only one good thing about the music. The music is awesome. "Anatomy of a Nightmare" is an awful movie. The worst documentary film I have ever seen.

I saw this documentary on television and thought it was quite interesting. I think this is one of the most interesting documentaries I've ever seen. It touches on a lot of topics, such as the genocide of Armenians, Nazi Germany, the loss of life on both sides during World War II. The documentary also mentions some historical events that happen to have taken place in the past but are still covered in the media. It covers some new things to me. I found that the documentary portrayed events in a very accurate way, which made me think that they were accurate. It also touched on a lot of interesting points and made me interested in it. It is very informative and gives a lot of information to the viewer. It is a good documentary that is entertaining, well written, and well produced.

Not a bad documentary. Just too damn long and ponderous. There's too much more to say about this footage. Would I even want to know more? Sure. But the fact is, the length of this doc is the least important thing. And that's why I felt compelled to write this review.

I have seen the first half of this documentary about the Aleppo attack in Syria, which was an important event, but the documentary was not done well. It seemed like they were getting there. It was slow. It felt like they were just rushing through what was going on. The second half of the documentary was done very well. The reporters interviews were very good. It was clear that the journalists had been to Aleppo in the past to see what it was like, and they were actually there to get the story, not to make it look like they were just making a documentary. The footage was very well edited. The only thing that I did not like was the camera work. The shots were not great and were too close to the action. When they were standing next to the war zone they just looked like they were from the streets. The editing was very good, but the shots that were taken were not the best. The long shots of the war zone just did not look very good. The last 20 minutes were very good, they showed a lot of footage from the ceasefire between the warring parties, showing that the war had not ended. This was the key point to the whole thing, showing that there was still fighting, that it was not over, and that there were people that were still trapped in a war zone. Overall, the documentary was very good, but it was a bit slow at times. The second half of the documentary was very good, showing the filming of the two doctors that were there. The second half was very good. Overall, I would recommend this documentary to anyone that is interested in Syria, or people who are interested in the current war. I would give this documentary a 9.5/10.

When watching this documentary it's not really what you expect. This is a very special and very honest documentary which tells a very strange and very shocking story. I liked the interviews. I liked the story told. It's not only about the war, it's also about the people. You feel like you know these people. They tell a lot of stories and you feel like you know them. I felt like I was watching the movie "Dunkirk". And I was amazed at how hard the people fought. It's so hard to watch the children who have to play with a weapon. You know they get really scared. And you don't know what they will do. It's a difficult movie to watch. I don't think it's a good movie but I think it's really worth watching.

This is not a documentary, it is an exploration of a subject. The film itself is about two men and their experiences in Aleppo, Syria, which is under rebel control. They were not there to shoot or to do any of the things that were going on in Aleppo. They were there to tell their story. The narration of the film is in English and Spanish. It seems to be the only language they are able to communicate. They were so intimate and it is difficult to hear them speak. I found the narration to be very engaging and I found it to be realistic. There is a lot of substance to the film and it was filmed well. The only thing that I found lacking is that the narrator sounds like he is speaking to two people. I really don't know how to describe it. The narration is so off putting because of the way that it sounds. But, I do like the fact that they have an Arabic narrator. Overall, it is a good film that is interesting to watch. It is quite sad and a little depressing at times. The director is very brave and I believe he has an obligation to tell his story. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to learn more about the Syrian conflict and why it is happening. But, this is not a film that I would recommend watching on TV. It is an exploration of a subject and a film about two men and their experiences. It is very difficult to watch, but I found it to be interesting and worthwhile.

It is not a film. It is a documentary about Aleppo and people's struggle to survive there. The film is the final one in the series. The first one (about the British government's support for the rebel resistance in Syria) was released in 2012. It was followed by the second one (about the resistance against Assad's regime in Syria) in 2014. In 2016 it was released the third one, in which the battle of Aleppo is the main subject. In addition, there are several other films about the war. The three films can be used as a textbook on the history of the war, but it does not make a documentary about it, because it doesn't follow the story from the first one. One film, made in the Netherlands, is also a textbook, but doesn't follow the story from the second one, except in the last part. So, you have to see the three films, but you must watch them in a different order. Otherwise you'll not know what the film is about.

Caught up in the chaos of Syria's civil war, a group of three French journalists decided to make a documentary on what happened there and why. One of them is Gerard Bohn, who has spent the last five years in the country, and is the co-director of this movie, which traces the impact of the war and the politics of the moment on the country's inhabitants. The other is Sophie, who was in Syria for only six days, and also does a lot of reporting and has covered the war in Syria for a number of publications. Finally, we have Robin, a computer scientist from Lyon, who is in Aleppo as a volunteer journalist and video-journalist. We meet a lot of people from all walks of life, and there are moments when their stories of loss and anguish come together. The movie is a valuable companion to the book of interviews that accompanies it. Both are very informative, but the documentary is far more powerful. One of the more powerful is the footage that goes into the war, and this is where the real power of the documentary lies. The two are not just a story of three journalists on the ground, but an examination of the war in Syria from the perspective of the many other people in the country who are affected by it. If you like movies about a war in a different way, this is a good one.

I was surprised that this film did not get an Oscar nomination, as it was an excellent documentary about Aleppo. I am now curious to know why, if the film was able to get nominated, it did not win. I will bet that it would have been the same if it had been nominated for a BAFTA, as it is a very well-done documentary and the acting is very good. I would have liked to see a few more of the interviews of those who lived in Aleppo. My one problem with the film is the editing. It is very choppy and it makes the film seem choppy. This is the reason I will probably not watch it again.

The movie is almost unbearable to watch, but in some respects it does actually make a lot of sense. The Syrian civil war is one of the most destructive and depressing things to happen to humanity, and it has been that way for decades, with no end in sight. Some, like George Clooney, have defended the Assad regime as being in the right, and as a model of a "benevolent dictatorship". Others, like Mr Obama and others like Bill O'Reilly, have vilified the country as a bloody hellhole that is doomed to never rise again. Either way, it is not a very entertaining movie. One part of the film is particularly eye-opening. One of the cameramen, who is a graduate student, tells the story of the war in Aleppo, and the resulting humanitarian crisis. We are treated to a tremendous amount of footage, and some of it is actually very good. But the majority of the film is filmed in a very haphazard fashion, with shaky, muffled shots, and the sound is often too low or muffled to make out any dialogue, even the occasional sentences of President Assad. The result is that, if you are looking for a gripping or educational film about the Syrian war, this is not the one for you. And if you are looking for a great movie about human tragedy and tragedy in general, then you will probably enjoy this film a lot. It is just that the film is not very good.

This documentary is actually very good. It focuses on the true story of four small children, who were kidnapped and forced to become soldiers, during the war in Syria. The kids all spoke one language, Arabic, and they learned that it was a big taboo to use their true names. It is impossible to find out who they really are. So they were forced to become a little "special" unit, and only after a year of training did they finally start fighting. The kids who were rescued became famous after the war. So much that they were given nicknames and names that they thought were not meant for them. But the children themselves told the story and when they were released they were very happy. After the war they were able to reunite with their families, but the difficulties they had to face after that started to catch up with them. The children that were not able to find their real families also had some kind of hardship as well. The documentary does not offer a lot of details, and if you have not heard about the Syrian conflict you probably won't want to. But it is a very good documentary nonetheless. It is a very sad story, that is made very well. If you have never heard about the Syrian war, it is definitely a good place to start, but it is a little more graphic than you might expect. But it is worth it.

I thought this was an important documentary. It focuses on the role of "resistance fighters" in Syria and the effects of the civil war on their lives. They have everything from intensive physical training to daily humanitarian aid to survive in the worst of times. But they also have to be a "strategic resource" for the regime. It is the government's responsibility to provide them with medical care and supplies, in order to be able to fend off attacks by the rebels. The film also focuses on the situation of the Aleppo and Hama areas. And the first time I ever heard about the Syrian regime's massacre of civilians in Aleppo. I was glad to see that it had finally been revealed. The subject of the film is important and is not to be ignored. But I think it is a bit too biased towards the "rebels". I think it should have focused on the Syrian government, but I still recommend it.
