Layla M. Regissert av Mijke de Jong

Anmeldelser fra kritikere

Layla M.‘s progression from youthful enchantment to adult exhaustion feels too fast and more than a little tired; the closest analogue in recent years is probably Olivier Assayas’ Something in the Air, which similarly finds its plucky protagonist sidelined by the end to dirty-dish duty while twentysomething radical dudes plan their very important protests in the living room. De Jong is also guilty of relying on visual shortcuts to chart Layla’s radicalization.

There’s a contrived, programmatic quality to watching Layla follow her ideals to the edge of the cliff, but co-writer/director Mijke de Jong and her lead actor, Nora El Koussour, work hard to complicate her journey, both internally and externally. They arrive at a plausible case study in terror recruitment, linked in no small part to Western policies of discrimination and harassment. But they also create a fully realized character whose passion has no home in a world dominated by men.
