Compelling by virtue of its insight into the struggles faced by women and impoverished people in other parts of the world, the film is also a sad reminder that those same people are often the ones responsible for drawing attention to those injustices.
This admirably mordant film deserves to travel widely on the festival circuit as well as art houses beyond its Francophone countries of origin.
If most of the individual characters finally fade somewhat into the background, the director's portrait of a country's complex relationship to its own values, laws and taboos finally lingers.
It's rare to leave the cinema wishing a 90-minute film was longer, but Meryem Benm'Barek's Sofia shows enough promise to demand a more substantial story.
Sofia never highlights injustice through martyrdom or turning the protagonist into a heroine, but in turning her into a survivor. [Full review in Spanish]
What the film tries to express is praiseworthy, but its narrative exposition seems more an ace up its sleeve than a true consequence of the impossible crossroads of the Moroccan woman. [Full Review in Spanish]
[Director] tMeryem Benm'Barek shows the contradictory Moroccan culture in Sofia's haggard eyes. [Full review in Spanish]
It's a well-made, brief exercise that's utterly gripping for its opening scenes and never less than interesting.
The story's dramaturgy eludes stark realism and seeks austerity within a production also presided by formal restraint... [Full review in Spanish]
It's a small, worthy, film that works reasonably well, although there's something a little too linear about its structure.
