This was not as I expected. The plot wasn't very strong and kind of dragged out. There was a lot of conflict and ultimately no resolution either way. She didn't work it out with her husband or leave him so it doesn't have any solid ending. It does show human struggle and emotion especially how spousal conflict affects children terribly. Divorce isn't so much about who is right but doing what is right for everyone.

A movie about a woman trying to escape a traditional life. It is not very convincing and the lead character is inarticulate and not very sympathetic.

A very good Moroccan-Israeli version of the last part of Scenes of a marriage. Well worth watching.
