In a small village near North Africa, the local women fetch water from a mountaintop spring, clambering up the rocky path beneath the sun. Leila, a young bride, urges the women to launch a love strike: no more cuddling, no more sex until the men run water into the village.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
this was a human and life affirming movie. Not necessarily realistic in its outcome, but its a movie after all. The most enjoyable elements for me were glimpsing another culture and the beautiful singing.
This is a tuching movie, that gives an interesting perspective on the way muslims live relationships between women and men.
At some points a little bit "constructed" story, as we say in german. Thats why only 4 stars to me.
2/5. A parte la traduzione del titolo, da "La source des femmes" a "La sorgente dell'amore" (...), troppa roba lo prolunga e lo rende strabordante. Sarebbe stato apprezzabile se più contenuto, in senso tematico e temporale.
