Good and important Algerian film on religious fundamentalism and mysoginy
Excellent Algerian film on the advancemeny of religious fundamentalism in the country and about mysoginy. Very important as that phenomena also happens in other parts of the world and, as a Brazilian, I assure that not only in islamic countries. It is well filmed and there is a good development of interesting characters.
