  • Wadjda is a movie about freedom - and nothing represents freedom with the metaphoric simplicity and symmetry of a bicycle. show more

  • Wadjda offers an interesting contrast to films made in Iran. Where the latter country has a long cinematic tradition, Mansour's is the first feature shot entirely in Saudi Arabia. show more

  • Al-Mansour has managed to embue Wadjda with a hopeful spirit, partially because she takes time to show women finding ways to be themselves in private moments. And partially because she suggests with a few subtle touches that the situation might be slowly improving. show more

    Simple plot with great sub-plots. Good character development. Wonderful script. Solid performances by cast. Interesting insight into Saudi culture. Guaranteed Best Foreign Film nomination.

    Every girl and woman in America should see this as a reminder of the freedoms and respect they have fought for over the past century and achieved. I hope in my next life I am not a woman in the Middle East unless women there have achieved equality that we have in the US. It took guts to film this.
