Dinah's tale begins with the story of her mothers: Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah, the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts that are to sustain her through a hard-working youth, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land.

admirable work
17 April 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

the first observation - the film is magnificent pledge for define/rediscover the Bible as the most important book. not only as religious work but as the tool for discover the world. the film is adaptation of a seductive interpretation of the episode of the rape of Dinah.and this does it the good and the bad aspects. impressive cinematography, beautiful performances, the noble message with feminist flavor. against, maybe, the ordinaries sins of religious films. or the not high accuracy to the book. but it is an impressive film. and this is more than an ordinary virtue.
