Criticism of ‘Sinjar’, the social drama of Nora Navas

Anna Bofarull directs this film in which the stories of three women intersect.

    Intimate cinema very well allied with political cinema with the mission of telling us three female stories and combating slavery, war, fundamentalism, violence or machismo, ‘Sinjar’ is a chronicle of a moment and a (bad) state of things that we needed. A vibrant x-ray that we appreciate and applaud, despite how much it hurts us at various times during its fluid and well-oiled development. And that is precisely what we value: that there are no forced happy endings. A wisp of hope, yes; a fairy tale ending, no, because it would be counterproductive and unreal.

    Forceful in its denunciation and delicate in its description of the harsh and unbearable daily life of its brave protagonists, Anna M. Bofarull’s film is a new recital of the talent of Nora Navas; it is a sample of Neorealism of the 21st century (that dusty final road is De Sica and it is Rossellini; it is Sophia Loren and it is Ingrid Bergman) and it is a painful testimony of a reality that happens close to our homes. really very very close. Hopefully, from the cinema and from the arts in general, there will never be peace for the wicked and the wicked.

    For active and outraged viewers

    The best: the three leading actresses and all their truth.

    The worst: that it is based on atrocities and real characters.
