Storyline

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

An incredible emotional journey that everyone should experience.
14 April 2013 | by sjcoe3See all my reviews

This was an amazing film!! it actually didn't seem that i was watching a film, but that i was eavesdropping on a woman's life with her friends and her experiences working in Gaza but living in Israel. The normality of taking a bus and clubbing in juxtaposition to the reality in Gaza is breathtaking. How fast the family in Gaza disintegrated through the deaths of loved ones was heartbreaking. The loss of the doctor's innocence and how her world will change forever. One of the other reviewers has clearly not lost a child, a woman who does will say anything through her pain. The film was emotionally draining because it had it all. i give it a 9, and in my books few movies deserve that!
