Critic Reviews for The Source (La source des femmes)
The good intentions are obvious, but a bit more crunch is sorely needed.
The mix of female empowerment and Middle eastern colour is kept just on the right side of schmaltzy by firecracker turns from Leïla Bekhti as the headstrong strike-leader and Biyouna as a formidable widower.
The sheer injustice at the heart of an overlong tale still creates an automatic sympathy for the women, sisters in a way to the women in Made In Dagenham.

Audience Reviews for The Source (La source des femmes)
The writer clearly sees the nuance of human emotion too subtle for the other "critics" on this page to appreciate. This film clearly conveys a message about several forms of cognitive bias, rarely portrayed in modern film. Women exist separately and are not the slaves to men. Not enough of this message to people. It is important to penetrate the collective psyche with this message. Well done.
