Mohamed Al-Daradji’s drama follows Sara (Zahraa Gandour) as she prepares to commit a suicide bombing in the newly re-opened Baghdad Central Station. As she readies herself to commit this act, she is involved in a series of micro-dramas with people in the station, giving us a panorama of life in Iraq in 2006, from teenage brides to hustlers, fruit sellers and scolding mothers. Reminiscent of Italian neo-realism, we get a true sense of Iraqi society, as well as the forces that have pushed Sara to her horrific intentions. Unsentimental and insightful. ★★★★ "Supreme acting elevates a humane hostage drama" - Leslie Felperin, The Guardian
