Product Description

From trailblazing director Rolla Selbak, starring Sheetal Sheth (The World Unseen, I Can't Think Straight), Mercedes Masöhn (Quarantine 2) and introducing Syrian TV star Angela Zahra, comes a triptych tale of three women facing up to futures that clash with what they were brought up to expect and embrace.

Three Veils is the story of three young Muslim women whose lives unexpectedly intersect as they deal with issues of sexuality, tradition, and identity. To the outside world, they seem to be typical young college students dealing with the challenges of growing up and finding ones place in the world. But each girl has a story that, behind the veil, is brimming with desire.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film, great story, great acting 21 Aug 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a film I will be glad to keep in my permanent collection. It reminded me, in some ways, of If these Walls Could Talk 2 - following the lives of contemporary women and their lives, laughs, struggles as they seek to become true to themselves in a world that has different expectations/sometimes hands them a raw deal.

Great performances by the three very different female leads. The rest of the cast is strong, too; again, with some great contrasts between characters

The story is told - or at least parts of it are - three times. Each time from the perspective of one of the three female leads. On the whole, this device works and is a useful reminder that whilst we only experience life from our perspective there are others that are equally valid.

It also reminded me, in a very different way, of Sliding Doors - the `what if' moments are more subtle but there are instances where if someone had arrived a moment earlier/later things might have been very different. And, that, of course, is very true to life. As, I think, is the whole film. The women and the issues they face feel `real' and could apply across a variety of ages, cultures and traditions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three women 21 Feb 2013
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The story of the 3 very different, but interconnected, lives of three Middle Eastern women living in the US.

Leyla is preparing to get married, leaving best friend tomboy Nikki and life as she knew it behind. However, when she meets Jamal, an acquaintance (Amira) from school's brother, she starts doubting whether she is engaged to the right person and for the right reason.
Nikki and Amira are introduced as extremes in Leyla's life where Nikki represents the crazy, funny and popular - but self-proclaimend f***up - friend, and Amira is the geeky, religious aspiring study partner, but the two start a budding friendship when Leyla has less time for them and when they realise that they actually kind of like - and maybe even need - each other.

It's well acted and with an interesting storyline where you see the different sides to the story from changing perspectives starting with Leyla, then Amira and finally Nikki. The three stories interweave beautifully and there is not too much overlap and repetition although they are all the same events, but with a different focus. This works very well. My only main complaint is that I thought the ending was a bit abrupt or superficial considering how much else had been put into the story.

Not so much a lesbian film as a film that deals with coming of age and finding your place in the world, but well worth a view. 3.5 stars
