Papicha, Made in France

Superficially, one cannot find any mistakes: the technical performance, image and sound quality, fact-based script or theme – inhumanly timed women in Algeria of 1997, when religious fundamentalism was becoming stronger – are pretty solid. But exactly this perfection is something that completely breaks the film’s credibility. The heroines of Papicha are not only written as in the American film, but also were filmed as so.
