A real story,
This review is from: Not Without My Daughter [DVD] (DVD)
I do not agree with the first viewer who marked this film as garbage. If he says that the film is a work of anti-Islamic thoughts, than he himself should re-think how he perceives other cultures...just by saying this.The review he has given here is his own opinion about the Americans not a review of the film! The main character, Betty, is a woman who tries to describe the hopelessness she felt over the situation of being deceived by her husbend and the cruel way she was treated in his own country. She followed him there because she trusted him. Through her eyes, what she experienced there was a culture that orders an utter obedience to women and leaves them hardly any rights, which was alien to her. There have been other cases of mistreating women in the Far East and I am sure they did not make it up just to make a movie! Other than that, it is great that this film was released to give us an insight how someone's life can turn upside down by crushes of cultures.
