Great film. What was moving was Wadjda, she wanted to rebel against everyone but the society she lives in is surrounded by people who claim to live their faith. This film shows the norm. However, it's great to see the truths in the story and all the characters. All men and women have morals and values but they also want to rebel from faith that has been the means to live their daily lives in socie... read more

I had seriously no idea what to expect from this movie and the main reason why I wanted to watch it was because it was included in the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' list. Eventually, it was a really interesting feature. Indeed, it is always pretty neat to discover a new land and a new culture. Still, while watching the damned thing, I couldn't help thinking that, even though it was dir... read more

"6.12. Puolalainen ohjaajamestari haluaa ajaa polkupyörällä, mutta se on vaikeaa, jos sattuu asumaan Saudi-Arabiassa, ja on kaiken lisäksi vielä tyttö. Isukki pelaa Dead Islandia hyvin kyseenalaisten kommenttien saattelemana ja haaveilee uudesta naikkosesta, koska vanha malli ei tuota poikia. Välillä esiintyvän huumorin kautta kulkeva elokuva ei ole koominen kuvaus naisen asemasta."

"Original Title: 'Wadjda' Directed by: Haifaa Al-Mansour Plot: An enterprising Saudi girl signs on for her school's Koran recitation competition as a way to raise the remaining funds she needs in order to buy the green bicycle that has captured her interest. Note: Even though it was interesting, while watching the damned thing, I couldn't help thinking that, even though it was directed by a Saudi women, it still felt that it was giving a Western point of view on this strict Muslim culture.

A good movie

“I had seriously no idea what to expect from this movie and the main reason why I wanted to watch it was because it was included in the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' list. Eventually, it was a really interesting feature. Indeed, it is always pretty neat to discover a new land and a new culture. Still, while watching the damned thing, I couldn't help thinking that, even though it was directed by a Saudi women, it still felt that it was giving a Western point of view on this strict Muslim culture. Basically, it gave a very bleak and sad view on the Saudi life, especially for the women and, even though it is probably true, it would have been nice to see something slightly more balanced. For example, towards the end, you get to see the main character reciting the Koran which seemed ” read more
