  • marty's rating of the film Amal

    What a brilliant documentary. Perfectly captured the troubled maturing and the universal predicament of compromise. I could relate on so many levels, the film stimulates you and asks what it means to be a woman - not just in a patriarchic society, what it means (and costs) to be a rebel, it's about the ideals and adjusting to the chaos. Perfectly balanced and great music too.
