It's not a ''white man'' propaganda
28 September 2018 | by gonijohnSee all my reviews

Absolutely recommended. I had my doubts, but the last minutes of the movie (from the wedding proposal and afterwards) and after reading what Iram Haq said in her interviews, I was convinced. I am very suspicious about this sudden interest ''all that love'' for Muslim women in western societies, but I feel this movie is sincere. I suggest, for a fair rating, to read Iram Haq's interviews before it.
