Critic Reviews for Wajib
Ms. Jacir is a thrifty filmmaker; there's nothing frilly in this movie. But she is also a sensitive and imaginative and resourceful one.
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.
It's the clear love and respect between them, despite old quarrels which makes it such a masterful and profound drama.
Jacir has previously stated that "family makes you crazy", and that's certainly true here, but there are lovely moments nonetheless...
