"FGM = Female Genital Mutilation!
This movie is a must-see! It has such an important message ... Something that every one should know and try to stop it!
In the name of Allah and prophet Muhammad they are committing a crime!
There is no where in Islam(Muslim's religion) or Quran (Islam's Holy book) where this is written. Prophet never ever said you need to purify a woman! It is only a brutal Bedouin ritual! Stop this crime now! 130,000,000 women in the world is not something you can ignore!!! 8000 per day!!! How can they! Stop these villains!"

"You know a film is going to be iffy at best when one of the quotes on the cover of the dvd exclaims "...A fairly well-made film, reasonably directed by Eran and it is a plea for women's rights..." Not exactly a rave review- and yet that is one of the best quotes that they could find? The acting is terrible and the story is loosely strung together. This plays like a b movie from the 70's. It's too bad because films from this region can be truly fascinating and give us a safe window into a volatile region. Is female castration horrible? Of course it is. But this is more like a bad latin soap opera with affected actors than a serious vehicle for womens rights. No offense to the latin soaps- at least they're fun to watch. Watching women being castrated and screaming in the middle of a weak storyline is not provocative filmmaking."
