It has always upset me the way that documentaries have to add some degree of theatrics to themselves, for example, like when they make one person reenact something that did happen. In this film this was particularly off putting. So the scenes where the lady is writing or travelling and gazing at the horizon or something like that , they always feel so forced and uncomfortable. But talking about the most prominent of the film's features i was mildly interested in what it had to say in the beginning but the uncompromising and unclear way that they put some of the issues related to the theme of the movie, namely the multiculturalism and the whole al qaeda conflicts was really unsatisfying. The film makes a big deal out of itself as a political film but, at the same time, refuses to any sort of didacticism. Not only that but the points of view expressed in the film are many times ambiguous and confusing.
So this is a documentary that doesn't really document much as it refuses to explain things, at the same time as it is an art film without much feeling to it.
Not feeling it too much but the subject was interesting enough
