Critic Reviews for Sofia
Compelling by virtue of its insight into the struggles faced by women and impoverished people in other parts of the world, the film is also a sad reminder that those same people are often the ones responsible for drawing attention to those injustices.
This admirably mordant film deserves to travel widely on the festival circuit as well as art houses beyond its Francophone countries of origin.
If most of the individual characters finally fade somewhat into the background, the director's portrait of a country's complex relationship to its own values, laws and taboos finally lingers.
There is a lot more than what meets the eye initially in Benm'Barek-Aloïsi's film, which slowly and delicately teases out the nuances in the relations between the classes.
