Format: DVD
Amusing story of two young women on the run. One from a family situation and one from a lazy, cheating husband who she still loves. The girls come from vastly different cultures but find something in common - they love to dance, and they use their passion for dance to forget the less happy side of their lives for a while.

It's definitely a chick flick - I think it will strike a chord somewhere inside with most women - but I don't see the guys being too keen!

HASH(0x94164d74) out of 5 stars Two friends, one journey, no limits 12 July 2013
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Some critics are calling this engaging film a modern day `Thelma and Louise, but with a happy ending'. Yes, is it is a story about tow disconsolate women who decide to take their lives in their own hands and set out on a road trip to prove they can indeed survive. As written by Joelle Touma and Marion Doussot and directed by Rachid Bouchareb (highly regarded for his touching films `Days of Glory' and `London River') JUST LIKE A WOMAN takes on a pair of women who have issues with men and allows us to see the building of a friendship of meaning and one that overcomes sour consequences with gentle grace.

Mona (Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani), 26, is an immigrant from Egypt who was brought to America by her now mother in law (Chafia Boudraa) to run her in-laws' mini market in Chicago and to marry her arranged husband is Mourad (Roschdy Zem), a kind and gentle man who can't stand up to his authoritarian mother. Mona is harassed by her mother-in-law because after five years of marriage, she hasn't be able to get pregnant, something that's considered a shame and a taboo in her culture. Marilyn (Sienna Miller), 29, is a receptionist at a computer repair company. Her marriage with Harvey (Jesse Bob Harper) is on the ropes. The only thing in her life that makes her happy is her belly dancing class as taught by her close friend Peter (Michael Ehlers) who sees Marilyn's gifts and encourages her to try out for a belly dancing group in Santa Fe, NM. Marilyn shops at Mona's mini-market and they have become friends who both incidentally love belly dancing. Two tragedies occur: Mona accidentally gives her mother-in-law a lethal dose of digoxin and fearing she will be arrested she flees; Marilyn loses her job because of the recession and when she arrives home she discovers Harvey cheating on her. With nothing left to lose, Marilyn decides to go to Santa Fe after all. Mona and Marilyn run into each other on a rest area on the side of a highway. They decide to continue the trip together. They cross the USA, pitching their tent in trailer parks and in the middle of the desert. They earn some cash belly dancing together in restaurants and bars. Back in Chicago, Mona is considered a fugitive; she's wanted for the murder of her mother-in-law. Harvey asks the police to look for Marilyn who disappeared without leaving a trace. How the plans of the two women who have become fast friends are resolved provides the somewhat surprise ending.

Miller and Farahani create a magnetic chemistry on screen and from the get-go they have us routing for their flight to freedom. The various characters they meet on this road trip are well acted and the general feeling at the end of the film is one of warm applause. Grady Harp, July 13

HASH(0x9488d198) out of 5 stars True friendship movie 24 Aug. 2013
By Christi Crochet - Published on Amazon.com

This movie showcased what it means to be a true friend. It shows the struggles of two women and how leaning on each other helped them out. It was a refreshingly good movie.
HASH(0x9488d5d0) out of 5 stars Original and touching, with some sizzle-pop, pain, and cross-cultural bonding. 25 Jan. 2014
By GskFn - Published on Amazon.com
This is an entertaining film that also pokes and prods sociologically. I won't spoil the story with specifics about the central relationship that develops, and what people around them do. I will say this: if you care about people, relationships, and mixing of cultural norms, there is something here. Unfortunate pain, rights and wrongs, and willful gain. Add in some belly dancing, sparks of sex appeal, and personalities each edgy but sensitive in their different ways. Enjoy.

I give it only four stars instead of five because the plot left a little to be desired. Yes, it was intriguing and entertaining, and it did the job of providing a context for the people and relationships. But it was strewn with farfetched situations for which explanations weren't given. Get past that, and you're good.
HASH(0x94164ec4) out of 5 stars Nice, Typical, and not Just Like any Woman! 6 April 2016
By Mreality - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Nice, warm feeling always develops from any unlikely friendship- usually as result of desperate lives & situations- this time for two very different Thelma & Louise from two different cultures, with a twist of Middle Eastern spices. I enjoyed the beautiful scenery of New Mexico, and watching the Iranian beauty, Golshifteh-- she is a GEM! The Arab/French writer/director could have avoided some typical cliche of such chick flicks, and instead dig deeper into souls of such women with such backgrounds- nevertheless, this is a nice film to see...
HASH(0x9488d51c) out of 5 stars Cheesie but do it if you are a belly dancer 11 Dec. 2013
By chicagoraqs - Published on Amazon.com

I paid to watch this movie because I was an extra in it. It is super cheesy, but if you are a belly dancer, just watch it, because how many movies are there about bellydancing?
