Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Atmosphere can't compensate for the enormous black hole at the center."
‑ Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic
"Inert Canadian-French drama attempts to explore the motivation behind a suicide bombing."
‑ Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
"The director stated she did not intend to make a political film. It shows."
‑ Louis Proyect, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Multi-layered, eloquently crafted, and both heartfelt and harrowing, Inch'Allah might also be described as the most extraordinarily powerful horror movie this year. And in its own politically and by extension narratively subversive way."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
"It is sincere, earnest, and well-intentioned. It's also just a little too slowly paced to maximize the impact of those qualities."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Brochu is mesmerizing as the outsider struggling to make an uneasy peace with her circumstances and the people around her."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Inch'Allah, filmed in Jordan and the West Bank, undercuts formidable graphic textures with a shallow would-be heroine."
‑ Michael Sragow, Orange County Register
"This beautifully and cunningly crafted motion picture is long overdue."
‑ Nathan Southern, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Understated, psychologically disturbing and complex with haunting images."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"The heart-affecting drama of a bridge builder from Canada who is worn down by the Israeli-Palestinian war."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A sober, intelligently made drama."
‑ Alissa Simon, Variety
"Barbeau-Lavalette builds a persuasive sensory immediacy in "Inch'Allah," even as her story grows increasingly contrived."
‑ Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
"Inch'Allah is a powerful tale that loses its way in the final act, but while it damages the movie it can't lessen all that came before. It also can't lessen our awareness of the very sad reality."
‑ Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects
"The striking story of a Western doctor in Palestine and her long, hard path to the realization that all of her good intentions can barely begin to counter the tidal wave of history she has chosen to surf."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Inch'Allah tries hard, and serves up a few moments of compelling specificity, but for the most part, it has little to offer beyond good intentions. For a subject this daunting and knotty, that isn't nearly enough."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, The Dissolve
