Chloe is a young Canadian doctor who divides her time between Ramallah, where she works with the Red Crescent, and Jerusalem, where she lives next door to her friend Ava, a young Israeli soldier. Increasingly sensitive to the conflict, Chloe goes daily through the checkpoint between the two cities to get to the refugee camp where she monitors the pregnancies of young women. As she becomes friends with Rand, one of her patients, Chloe learns more about life in the occupied territories and gets to spend some time with Rand's family. Torn between the two sides of the conflict, Chloe tries as best she can to build bridges between her friends but suffers from remaining a perpetual foreigner to both sides. Following up her acclaimed debut-feature Le ring, filmmaker Anais Barbeau-Lavalette delivers with Inch'Allah the moving tale a young woman's encounter with war and its everyday life. Avoiding any political agenda, Chloe's story questions how one can internalize a foreign conflict without ... Written by micro_scope

A Daily Human Tragedy
4 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

The woman leading the characters, a doctor from Quebec, Canada, is a sensitive, life- loving person, who has no prejudice, and develops friends on both sides of the Israeli- Palestinian border. The brutality of everyday life in this war zone, thus weighs heavily upon her psyche. She sees the people on both sides of the border, as valuable human beings, whereas most of those around her are tragically, held by fear and hatred towards the other side. This gives a fairly good view of the tense situation, that exists in this area and the life of little hope that exists, particularly in the "conquered" Arab region. It's a valuable look behind the superficiality of the media, towards this troubled land, through the eyes of someone with investment in both sides. This is cinema for grown-ups, where the "bang-bang" has real human consequences.
