The film is a combination of parallel stories of several characters having place in several locations: Emir, Assassination, Wasim, Merger and the Father-son.
OpinionSyriana is a cynical film, without any consolation or hope, reveals plots and at the same time leaves a thousand of unanswered questions. I appreciated the choice of using the languages of those locations ( English, French, Arabic, Urdu and Farsi).
Matt Damon's character is superfluous, he doesn't add anything else. Useless the final scene when he returns home to his family.
