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

Inch'Allah is a powerful tale that loses its way in the final act, but while it damages the movie it can't lessen all that came before. It also can't lessen our awareness of the very sad reality.

Multi-layered, eloquently crafted, and both heartfelt and harrowing, Inch'Allah might also be described as the most extraordinarily powerful horror movie this year. And in its own politically and by extension narratively subversive way.

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

Understated, psychologically disturbing and complex with haunting images.

The striking story of a Western doctor in Palestine and her long, hard path to the realization that all of her good intentions can barely begin to counter the tidal wave of history she has chosen to surf.

It is sincere, earnest, and well-intentioned. It's also just a little too slowly paced to maximize the impact of those qualities.

However beautiful, a blank slate is, finally, just that.

Though "Inch'Allah" - which translates to "God Willing" - has good performances and fine location photography, its irresponsible attitude towards terrorism goes too far.

Inch'Allah tries hard, and serves up a few moments of compelling specificity, but for the most part, it has little to offer beyond good intentions. For a subject this daunting and knotty, that isn't nearly enough.

This film has a lot to say, and it's sometimes affecting, but most of the time feels too understated to really deliver the powerful effect it seems to be going for.
