2012 Oscar Foreign Language Film Submissions: ‘Abu, Son of Adam’

2011 National Film Awards, India – Winners Best Film, Best Actor, Best Cinematography, Best Music Director.

Life has never been too kind to Abu and his wife Ayisu. Abandoned by their only son, they’re not getting any younger. Yet Hajj is always like a distant dream. But now, after so many years of hardworking, money saving, and selling their assets, will God finally going to grant them their ultimate wish? A good film with very good messages and very good songs.

My Rating: 7/10
