      Andrea Gronvall Chicago Reader [A] crowd-pleasing Palestinian drama. Apr 16, 2020 Full Review Wenlei Ma Annemarie Jacir's insight into inter-generation tension is what makes Wajib so compelling and watchable, while never losing touch of the specificity of this particular father and son. Rated: 4/5 Oct 18, 2018 Full Review David Stratton The Australian Nothing seems out of place, but the revelations offered by Wajib into the lives of ordinary Palestinians are suffused with stoic wisdom. Rated: 4/5 Oct 13, 2018 Full Review Becky Kukla The Digital Fix Though the premise of a father and son reconnecting is not necessarily unique, the context of Wajib breathes new life into an old story Rated: 7/10 Mar 8, 2019 Full Review Rob Aldam Backseat Mafia It's the clear love and respect between them, despite old quarrels which makes it such a masterful and profound drama. Nov 3, 2018 Full Review David 'Mad Dog' Bradley Adelaide Review Jacir has previously stated that "family makes you crazy", and that's certainly true here, but there are lovely moments nonetheless...

      Karim F Acting so good, you forget that it's a movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/07/24 Full Review Audience Member Really good father son story with Palestinian issues as a background Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a terrific little film. There are so many things to enjoy- strong central performances, wonderful cameo roles, a real sense of time and place and personal dramas which convincingly portray wider issues. A delight from beginning to end. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Though the dialogue and the characters were well-developed, I feel Wajib failed to deliver a satisfactory ending. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member it was like being on a merry go round. same words over and over again with different people. I went to sleep Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A poignant insight into the life of Palestinians, whilst at the same time an enthralling comedy. My wife fell in love with the father and we both felt that the father and son acting team were superb. As the director describes: Nazareth itself is a further actor in the film. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
