Wadjda

Le Tour de Cinema

Wadjda PG

Director: Haifaa Al-Mansour
Cast: Reem Abdullah, Waad Mohammed
Origin: Saudi Arabia
Subtitles: Yes

Ten-year-old Wadjda wants to buy a beautiful green bicycle but her mother forbids it, afraid of repercussions in a closed society. The spirited Wadjda sets out to raise the money herself. Clearly underpinned by its representation of a society which is very restrictive for women, this charming film offers a positive view of one girl’s determination to be different. As one of the first films to come out of Saudi Arabia and the first to be directed by a woman, Wadjda is as important as it is enjoyable and should be treasured the world over.
