Will leave you speechless two times over -- first with despair, then with joy.
The filmmakers' restraint is admirable in this era of overheated editorializing.
A complex and quietly devastating indictment of chauvinist societies that see women as lovers, mothers and servants, and treat anyone who canâ(TM)t fulfill those roles as a nonperson.
Mary Olive Smith and Amy Bucher feel no need to overlay this health-care calamity with pious outrage.
If pic's B.O. potential seems slight, the same can't be said of the film's impact on awareness of Africa, altruism and the lifelong misery caused by reparable medical conditions in areas where the closest road can mean a three-day hike.
A powerful, resonant, cautionary tale.
Five young Ethiopian women doomed to social ostracism and physical misery because of 'obstetric fistulas' walk miles to get treatment and reclaim their lives, and in doing so, march straight into our hearts.
... a beautiful and uplifting film...[and] Ethiopia has never appeared more beautiful than in this film's cinematography by Smith, Tony Hardmon and Jerry Risius.
A most righteous cause, but one has to wonder if this is a documentary film, or an infomercial for the subject hospital
This is the real life that young African natives face, emotionally told by 5 young women, devastated and isolated by obstetric fistula, and their hopeful search for a cure.
[Director Mary Olive] Smith makes no pretense of keeping a dispassionate distance from her subject: Her film is an unabashed call to action that shines a spotlight on a problem whose intimate medical nature relegated it to the shadows.
At times, it becomes reminiscent of the well-meaning but racist documentaries of the distant past and suffers from an unintentionally patronizing Nanook of the North syndrome.
Heartbreaking yet hopeful. One never realizes how lucky they are until they see what others go through... and this film really shows what it's like for these women. Congrats to those that run the hospitals and donate their time and energy into such a great purpose.
