Vulnerable
29 July 2018 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

This film had broad international production support including several European countries. Filmed and storied out of Tunisia it's message has broad application to all countries where power and authority bullies & threatens individual rights even so far as terrorizing their citizens. We have institutionalized political & religious brutality in this film as a female college student attending a school party encounters the police. Her quest for justice is hampered by being a liberal female in a conservative country. Kafkaesque, but is there still hope? Despite the verbal/physical battering by police her resoluteness grows, but again perhaps too late. Intelligently written & directed, but it's the acting (often non-verbal) by Mariam Al Ferjan that engages & captures your attention, and worthy of an award.
