Storyline

Reconstruction of the political drama around Ayaan Hirsi Ali that heralded the fall of the Dutch cabinet. A musical documentary on a subject close to all Dutch people: truth and lies in politics. The film exposes the motives surrounding the drama in which feminist activist and politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali was accused of lying about her identity. In this political story we are also told the personal tale of the young girl Sadaf, who sought asylum years ago. THE LIE demonstrates the human side of Dutch politics, while revealing how Holland deals with the thorny immigration issue. Written by EYE International

Peculiar Dutch documentary.
25 April 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Feature documentary explores the divisive case of Somali born Ayaan Hirsi Ali, poor immigrant celebrated for writing "Infidel and Nomad" and becoming a member of the Dutch parliament, only to be expelled from Holland over her false immigration declaration, known but becoming an issue, when she confirms the fact in a TV documentary.

The film leaves Ali an indistinct figure and concentrates on Immigration Minister Rita Verdonk, on whose table the matter landed and who takes the stand that no matter how admirable the woman might be, the law was clear.

Most remarkable aspect of the film is that those involved get to sing, including an Iranian restaurateur, a Dutch politician finally Verdonk, whose body guards break out in dance moves.

The treatment doesn't manage to harvest the potential of the story despite competent big screen filming.
