Like belly-dancing itself, this drama is meant for the soul, not the mind - or as Marilyn's instructor commands, "Brains! Stop using them!"
The problem with the film, directed by France's Rachid Bouchareb from a script by Joelle Touma and Marion Doussot, is that the men are mostly one-dimensional louts.
This well-intentioned buddy-road-trip flick lacks the danger, the drama and the sex appeal that most moviegoers will be looking for.
Just like its meaningless title, Rachid Bouchareb's disappointing drama evokes better works without developing any distinct identity of its own.
Bouchareb fails to turn his outsider's point of view into new insights, and instead takes the easy route, falling back on familiar stereotypes in his tour of US misogyny and xenophobia.
It's a shame Ms. Miller has to try so hard, to grimace so much, to add emotional embellishment to compensate for a weak script.
... completely falls apart amid a collection of heavy-handed cliches.
Although branded throughout by a heavily mournful identification with these terribly wronged women's plights, the film is nevertheless silly in the extreme.
Not enough happens on this empowerment road trip to fill even a sub-90-minute running time, and the climax resorts to trite, unearned melodrama.
While one can sympathize with the subjects Bouchareb is exploring here, his picture strives for a great deal more than it actually delivers.
A phony, tone-deaf female fantasy.
[Miller and Farahani] give strong performances as women bonding over their delight in both movement and their own beauty.
