This is a very enlightning film I really enjoyed it.
To be honest, I struggled with the subtitles. I wasted alot of time rewinding to read ones that I missed.
Although, with that said, I DID enjoy this movie.
Very interesting movie - a little long and cutting back on some of the singing would have helped. While I liked the movie I would have enjoyed it more if I had not just recently seen the similar movie, 'Where do we go Now'. Some parts may have been a little contrived and I wonder if the story was a tad far fetched but it was a good illustration of the cruel way women are still treated in some parts of the world - don't teach them to read because they will not be happy to stay home and do housework - if you wife does not obey you, hit her, even in front of the children - in times of drought the women continue to work like slaves while the men sit around drinking tea and not helping. Amazing that the men in the movie, who had no work to do, didn't think to fix the problem themselves but waited for the government to do it. I don't think this movie was made for the local market. It is definitely worth seeing.
Really wonderful. The plight of women in these countries comes through, yet there is frivolity and hope and the feeling that some spirits just cannot be broken. Great cinematography using this barren landscape where nothing seems to thrive. The horrible climb to fetch a couple of pails of water that the women of all ages and even heavily pregnant have to make probably several times per day, is truly humbling. Makes you feel like some spoiled fat-cat who has NO reason EVER to complain! Great acting and characters - many of whom I suspect were non-actors.
This film, beautifully shot in remote region of Morocco , is very enjoyable. The story, particularly the singing exchanges, are a little hard to believe but the overall effect is spellbinding. The leading actress, Leila Bakhti is superb and the film contains one very delicate and highly erotic sex scene, the best on screen in years.. Other directors should take note. You don't need to dee the flesh or watch what's happening. See this: you'll see what I mean.
Yes it's a foreign film. yes you must read subtitles. BUT IT IS WORTH IT!
I found it to be a very enjoyable and insightful film. About an issue that many of us take for granted. Water.
Very quirky and very funny in part.
Very enjoyable movie, nice story definately worth a watch!
This was a good movie, quite enjoyable and a good laugh at times. Must admit though that the underlying premise looked a bit silly in reality as it could've been fixed with a few hundred dollars worth of poly pipe. But that bit of nit picking aside it was an interesting insight into the many issues facing traditional rural communities in the developing world, with the overlay of islam on top.
A very thought provoking movie. Makes you want to question and wonder why the people living in developed countries always whining and cantankerous and do not appreciate the simple things in life. This movie has made me want to think really long and hard and also be thankful for everything I have in life. Certainly watch and learn
This movie was so much fun. Beautiful to look at, quirky, upbeat and interesting throughout.
