Grim but inspirational.
Inspirational stuff, and often hysterical to boot.
A stirring movie about the ameliorative power of justice and mercy in a fascinating part of the world.
The courtroom scenes have a lively immediacy matched by the fiery efficiency of Ngassa and Ntuba.
Despite the lack of an especially defined narrative arc, the people are what make the movie -- as they should in a tale like this.
This is a serious film, but it is also entertaining.
[A] skilled, moving, and funny look at two woman judges pushing a progressive agenda in a Cameroon courthouse.
Possesses a disarming veracity which is not easily dismissed.
Where it triumphs, though, is in sending a message of hope from a continent too often associated with tragedy and despair.
Some cases are harrowing, but the film is never grim. The formidable Ngassa shows such resilience, kindness and common sense that the effect is oddly uplifting.
A compelling study of a small-town lawyer's determination to challenge Cameroon's institutionalised chauvinism, which judiciously combines small triumphs with a daunting sense of the task that lies ahead.
The human compassion shown by these judges, advocates and arbitrators, mixed with humor in the face of sin and brutality, is an impressive achievement for an ethnic oligarchy.
[font=Century Gothic]"Sisters in Law" is an enlightening documentary about a courthouse in Cameroon where three criminal cases are heard: a nine-year old girl was raped; an abused woman filing a complaint against her husband and a young girl who was beaten by her guardian and ran away. Presiding over the court are two women, judge and prosecutor, who not only dispense justice and seek the truth but also educate.(Incredibly, two of the defendants were seemingly unaware that they had done anything wrong.) In the end, they give hope for all women in developing countries.[/font]
