Sisters in Law (2005)
Critic Reviews for Sisters in Law
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.
Audience Reviews for Sisters in Law
[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] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font]
