Enough! / Barakat! (Algeria)

Directed by Djamila Sahraoui

2006, 94 min.

In Arabic and French with English subtitles

Djamila Sahraoui's directorial debut is a sobering drama set during Algeria's blood-soaked civil war in 1990. Amel, an emergency physician, joins forces with Khadija, a nurse who once fought for Algerian independence against the French, to search for her husband, a journalist whose writings led to his disappearance. Despite the extreme danger and difficulties of their quest, the two women forge a bond of mutual affection and respect that leads to a deeper understanding of how their lives were shaped by their country's history.
