Being a refugee is so difficult but dumb people dislike them and not the wars that created them

I just saw "Capernaum" last night - it is one of the best films I've ever seen. This young man, Zain Al Rafeea, is an amazing actor. His performance was beautiful and made me cry. I hope Zain has a very successful future and I look forward to seeing him in many more movies <3 He deserves all the happiness in the world.

They have been making these movies, about children enduring abject poverty , in places all over the world, since the 50s, like "The Bicycle Thief" and "Pathar Panchali", and not a damn thing has gotten better , in the world to end child poverty, fact of the matter it gets worse! We watch these movies , feel heartbroken, for a few weeks , then forget about it , and move on effecting no change and demanding none!

I wish the movie had a different story line. I have met many Syrian children who have endured hardship and had to help their families, most children lost their parents and had to support their younger siblings. The story of a boy suing his parents is way too western. When in reality these Arab children would never think of scooping that low to destroy their families lives more than their lives have already been destroyed.
