Critic Reviews for Wajib
Wajib gives an unfussily illuminating snapshot of modern-day Nazareth, where a majority Arab population - most seen here are Christian - has found ways to get along under the fiddly, capricious restrictions of the Israeli state.
An intimate, well-played disquisition on what it means to be a Palestinian abroad versus a Palestinian at home.
Wajib may appear to have narrowed its horizons, but in burrowing down to the essentials, allowing detail to speak volumes, [Jacir] proves, resoundingly, that less can be far, far more.
Jacir continues to impress with this poignant, bittersweet comedy of estrangement and identity...
There's little here that bucks the conventional road-movie structure, but the droll script and humane performances are quite special.
