As a Tunisian citizen, Am proud and afraid to admit this is astonishingly realistic.
1 October 2018 | by ahmedifaoui-02211See all my reviews

First, I gotta say this is my first review ever.

Second, I heard a lot about this movie, that recently it was nominated to represent Tunisia in Oscar's pre-selection nominees.. So, I kinda expected too much, but I also expected some kind of disappointment (My country's filmmaking industry is so bad.. Like really really bad). I was surprised though. The directing made a huge difference, focusing on little details that are extremely important yet usually ignored. (Like That scene when they were heading back after the legal physical check). The acting also, especially by Youssef and the majority of the cops, was surprisingly remarkable. Another remarkable point, how the director wass successful in: 1 Bringing clear the circumstances of the rape case without showing the scene. 2 Not using a violent language, something others would think necessary regarding the context of the movie. These two points are considered "a big deal" in such a religious country.

Third, despite all the appreciation for Mariem's acting, I don't think she did a great job, because playing as a leading role, you got to do much more, especially the non-verbal acting, she kinda made some awkward scenes.

In total, I was satisfied, I highly recommend it if you're not Tunisian.
