影評:
《革命前夕的歌唱》以豐沛情感和政治能量來描述日常生活,本片推出的時刻,該國正處於非常特別的一刻。「法拉象徵了突尼西亞的青年力量,以及所有努力求生存的阿拉伯藝術家的力量。」蕾拉布琪指出。「媒體只觸及到表面,這部片希望更深入來探討,我想藉由一個人的故事,讓人們看到革命發生的氛圍。」法拉在今日能自由歌唱嗎?「突尼西亞比以往更注重言論自由,但還是有部落客和饒舌歌手被逮捕,」導演解釋道。「唱是可以唱,但可能會惹來麻煩,」女主角也確認。「抗爭不曾間斷,都為了把界限推向更遠,未來只會更好,我很樂觀。」本片得到突尼西亞文化部資助,看來是個好兆頭……(Cineuropa)
「……蕾拉布琪帶來令人亮眼的處女作……」(綜藝報)
「……女主角梅德哈法演技突出」(綜藝報)
「……梅德哈法拿起麥克風能量十足,令人看得目不轉睛……」(好萊塢報導者)
「攝影師塞巴斯提安古柏菲拍攝的演唱會片段為個人代表作……」(好萊塢報導者)

Reviews:
As I Open My Eyes narrates with expressive and political power everyday life at a particular moment in time in the country. “Farah represents the strength of Tunisian young people and of all Arab artists who have to struggle to survive,” states Leyla Bouzid. “The film seeks to go further into about what has been told superficially by the media. Using a personal story, I sought to give an idea of the climate in which the revolution was born.” Would Farah be free to sing today? “There is greater awareness of the importance of freedom of speech today in Tunisia, but they still arrest bloggers and rappers,” explains the director. “You can sing, but you might have problems,” confirms the lead actress. “It's a constant battle, trying to raise the limits ever further. But it can only get better; I'm optimistic." Meanwhile, the film received financing from the Tunisian Ministry for Culture, and that's a good sign… (Cineuropa)
“…Leyla Bouzid’s impressive debut..” (Variety)
Medhaffer s acting “a stand-out lead performance”. (Variety)
“…Medhaffer practically explodes with energy when she’s behind the microphone, making for a very charismatic performer….” (THR)
“Cinematographer Sebastien Goepfert is at his best during the concert sequences,...” (THR)
 
Trivia:
In a scene when Farah talks with her father in a restaurant in the background we can see Nouri Bouzid who is the father of Layla Bouzid and he is also a famous director in Tunisia.
