Movie Info

Chloe (Evelyne Brochu) is a young Canadian obstetrician working in a makeshift clinic in a Palestinian refugee camp in the West Bank, where she treats pregnant women under the supervision of Michael (Carlo Brandt), a French doctor. Facing daily checkpoints and the separation barrier, Chloe is confronted with the conflict and the people it affects: Rand (Sabrina Ouazani), a patient for whom Chloe develops a deep affection; Faysal (Yousef Sweid), Rand's older brother, a fervent resister; Safi (Hammoudeh Alkarmi), their younger brother, a child shattered by war who dreams of flying across borders; and Ava (Sivan Levy), a young soldier who lives next door to Chloe in her apartment in Israel. Her encounter with the war draws Chloe into an adventure that's both deeply personal and as large as the land. She loses her bearings, is uprooted, and goes into freefall. There are trips that shake us and transform us. There are trips that shatter all of our certainties. For Chloe, INCH'ALLAH is such a trip.(c) eOne

Inert Canadian-French drama attempts to explore the motivation behind a suicide bombing.

Inch'Allah, filmed in Jordan and the West Bank, undercuts formidable graphic textures with a shallow would-be heroine.

August 26, 2013 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Barbeau-Lavalette builds a persuasive sensory immediacy in "Inch'Allah," even as her story grows increasingly contrived.

Audience Reviews for Inch'Allah

Adopting a naturalistic approach to depict the difficult reality of that place, this solid drama is complex enough to be worth checking out, centered on a woman who gets voluntarily caught up in a war that is not hers and driven by tragic circumstances to a drastic decision.
