City of Life

I recently got the privilege to watch this film and I must say it is a real eye opener. Produced in 2009, I was told it wasn't allowed to air in cinemas. It is an Emirati film based in Dubai and directed by Ali F. Mostafa. The film revolves around three people, one a young Arab man who is rich with his street smart friend; the other an Indian taxi driver who who has dreams of becoming a famous film star and resembles one of the famous Bollywood stars; finally a flight attendant who used to be a ballet dancer and is in search for love and companionship.

The film talks about how in one city there are different cultures and livelihoods similar to what can be experienced in any Gulf country. Dubai is the city known for opportunities and growth where dreams are encouraged and come true. I won't give any more details as you need to watch it for yourselves.
