DIF Review: ?????????? Jiyan: La vie

Rating: ??????????

What makes the film “Jiyan: La vie” so special?  This film was made by a filmmaker who worked intimately with refugees and this experience inspired him to make a film about their lives.  yes, it is fictionalized, but in every way this story is true to life about the challenges that people face when forced to flee a war-torn nation.  Yet the story is told with humor, authenticity, and even features a touch of romance.  I personally cannot imagine a mature, intelligent adult not appreciating this breathtaking film.

To see where you can watch this film, hit the Jiyan: La vie IMDB page.
