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.

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]
