All This Victory

Ahmad GhosseinLebanon – 2019

Lebanon, July 2006. Israel is fighting Hezbollah. Even though Marwan is about to emigrate to Canada with his wife, Rana, he wants to take advantage of a brief ceasefire to get his father out of the war zone. But the fighting flares up again. Marwan, who becomes separated from the worried Rana, is forced to take refuge with two friends of his father in one of the few houses still standing. A desperate married couple join them. Suddenly, they hear the voices of Israeli soldiers above them, unaware of their downstairs 'neighbours'. As bombs rain down, the tension rises.

«Ein wahrer Fall diente als Vorlage für diesen Thriller mit schwarzhumorigem Unterton.» Züritipp, Gregor Schenker

«Kammerspielartiger, spannend-berührender Film.» Movie-Eye, Benny Furth

«All This Victory spielt im Libanonkrieg, ist aber kein Kriegsfilm, sondern ein kammerspielmässiger philosophischer Essay über das Leben im Krieg. [...] Was uns das grossartig spielende Schauspiel-Quintett in der halbzerbombten Wohnung anbietet, ist ein umfassendes und differenziertes Universum existenzieller Äusserungen und Befindlichkeiten: das Gleichnis einer wunderbaren Mitmenschlichkeit.», Hanspeter Stalder

«Mit All This Victory legt Regisseur Ahmad Ghossein einen packenden, aber sehr bedrückenden Film über den hohen Preis des Krieges vor. Die intensiven Bilder, die Darsteller wie auch die Kameraarbeit sind Aspekte eines intensiven Kammerspiels, welches dem Zuschauer mehr als nur einmal aufzeigt, welche Opfer der Krieg fordert.», Rouven Linnarz

«A tense war drama.» Variety, Nick Vivarelli

«The film stands out in its creative approach to a complex idea and a highly relevant topic. Ahmad Ghossein and Myriam Sassine have presented it with precision and deep personal involvement, convincing us of their ability to build a multi-layered film world within a limited space, using minimalistic yet cinematic methods of storytelling.» Jury des Karlovy Vary International Film Festival
