Very interesting view of a seldom seen world--a contemporary woman discovering Islam.
26 April 2002 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

A fascinating view of a contemporary woman who returns to Morocco from France and re-discovers the Islamic heritage of her father. This isn't a tightly plotted film and some of the episodes may not work for the healthily skeptical or cynical, but there are some very nice images and views of the central character and the people she encounters as she opens a women's shelter and struggles to find the essence of Islam. This is a world and an image of the Muslim world that many Western viewers would benefit from seeing.
