Jake Wilson Sydney Morning Herald Some degree of feminist anger is implicit as comedy gives way to melodrama, but ultimately critique is swallowed up in the affirmation of life as an eternal cycle in which joy and sorrow are bound together. Rated: 3/5 Nov 21, 2014 Full Review David Stratton At the Movies (Australia) A film that's easy to enjoy while at the same time not treading much in the way of new ground. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 21, 2014 Full Review Stephen Romei The Australian This film continues to linger in my mind. See it at a morning session with a strong coffee. You won't regret it. Rated: 3/5 Nov 21, 2014 Full Review Tom Clift Concrete Playground Heavily indebted to the collected works of Jane Austen...distinguishes itself via a purposeful sense of cultural specificity within a more broadly relatable story. Rated: 3/5 Nov 21, 2014 Full Review Margaret Pomeranz At the Movies (Australia) It's a very enjoyable film. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 21, 2014 Full Review Louise Keller Urban Cinefile The enigmatic presence of Omar Sharif as he gives a running commentary from the sidelines, is the best thing about Laila Marrakchi's film about secrets, lies and family feuds.

Audience Member Disappointing on all fronts. Bill Murray, half-heartedly, plays a D list Rock Promoter Wanna Be who goes to Afganistan for a USO show but ends up losing his Talent, the amazing Zooey Deschanel, who freaks out and splits. Murray then "discovers" a native girl who can sing, marginally, and wants to appear on the local Afgan Star TV show. This movie is both Confused and Confusing. Kate Hudson phones in a performance as a hillbilly hooker inexplicable making her fortune in Kabul and Scott Caan and Danny McBride appear as manic arms dealers in the middle of a feud between two warlords. There is a lot of air time for Yusef Islam's songs (fka Cat Stevens) who publicly supports the real life fatwa against author Salmon Rushdie and says Rushdie should be killed. So much for free speech. Waste of time, waste of money, not entertaining. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member A mildly enjoyable little drama made by women for women - very much like Labaki's Caramel - but unfortunately the plot is a bit dispersed and more superficial than it should be, with unnecessary (and predictable) revelations that make it feel more like a soap opera. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Don't watch this if your authority figure has gone please Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member In the words of Sass Hunt "I liked the Morocconess". That for me, must be the only reason this cliched melodrama made it into the Sydney Film Festival. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie as really funny, dramatic and honest with emotional moments. Really entertaining!
