***1/2 out of ****      "Captain Abu Raed" is a rare treasure that one should go out of their way to salvage. Seldom can a film be as touching as this without throwing in some melodrama, and rarely can a story such as this be so simple yet so complex. "Captain Abu Raed" is indeed somewhat indecisive about what it wants to be, but that's precisely the beauty of it. This is a very humane film; touching, funny, and even at times dark. It explores compassion …

I am surprised that this film hasn't got the recognition that it deserves. It's definitely heart-felt and touching. I recommend it.
