An Algerian woman (Fejria Deliba) moves her family to 1970s France to reunite with her estranged husband, and finds herself drawn to French culture against the wishes of her conservative mother-in-law, bringing her three children on secret Sunday excursions, in Yamina Benguigui's 2001 film Inch'Allah Sunday (Inch'Allah Dimanche).
It was released stateside by Film Movement, which has a terrific track record of picking up quality standouts from international festivals overlooked by bigger distributors.
Inch'Allah Sunday screens Wednesday 5/12 at Alliance Francaise, 54 W. Chicago. Pre-screening discussion at 6:30 p.m., screening at 6:45. $5 includes French wine. Trailer after the jump.
