Inch’Allah Dimanche

6 11 2010

Inch’Allah Dimanche is extremely blunt and in your face–as it is meant to be. An Algerian woman, Zouina, who moves to France with her children to be reunited with her husband, finds herself faced in a foreign country with no one to turn to. This film takes you on a journey as Zouina looks for hope and comfort anywhere she can find it and tries to shield herself from those who either intentionally or unintentionally hurt her.

Inch’Allah Dimanche just touches the surface of an issue that filmmakers and human rights activists have been trying to explore for years. I only wish it would have gone deeper into the mindset of the characters. But the film should be given credit for not speculating too deeply into the unspoken thoughts of individuals whose actions are often the result of the society’s molding them slowly and mercilessly day by day.
