Storyline

Chloe is a young Canadian doctor who divides her time between Ramallah, where she works with the Red Crescent, and Jerusalem, where she lives next door to her friend Ava, a young Israeli soldier. Increasingly sensitive to the conflict, Chloe goes daily through the checkpoint between the two cities to get to the refugee camp where she monitors the pregnancies of young women. As she becomes friends with Rand, one of her patients, Chloe learns more about life in the occupied territories and gets to spend some time with Rand's family. Torn between the two sides of the conflict, Chloe tries as best she can to build bridges between her friends but suffers from remaining a perpetual foreigner to both sides. Following up her acclaimed debut-feature Le ring, filmmaker Anais Barbeau-Lavalette delivers with Inch'Allah the moving tale a young woman's encounter with war and its everyday life. Avoiding any political agenda, Chloe's story questions how one can internalize a foreign conflict without ... Written by micro_scope

Goofs

Chloe is seen participating in a funeral procession for a martyr (a boy killed by the Israelis). The boy is in a coffin, which is incorrect - martyrs are buried in a shroud, without a coffin. In addition, in Muslim societies in the Middle East, women would generally not participate in a funeral procession - though since Chloe is a foreigner she may get away with it. See more »

A white coat alone does not a doctor make!
1 June 2013 | by robkillianSee all my reviews

This powerful film is good, haunting, disturbing. But the Chloe character is fake, in- authentic and sad. Putting a white coat on a character does not make them a physician. Chloe as played is weak. There comes with education and experience in medicine an authority that is entirely lacking in this Chloe. This woman does not convey comfort with the bodies of the women she serves? Nor does she talk to them as if she has their best interests at heart. She repeatedly shuffles them in and out of clinics as if they are cattle, not humans.

A physician in her place would be a passionate advocate for all life; she would be a feminist. She would fight for life. But in the scenes wherein a child and baby die in her presence there is no attempt to save a life. She even states "I have blood on my shoes". Not: " I have blood on my hands". She lets a baby die without any attempt to breathe life into it.

Bizarre especially given the choice she makes by the end to truly have blood on her hands.

I went to the movie to see the choice a physician has made in extreme circumstances, but was met with a character that in no way understood or lived as a physician. Such a sad failure for a movie that could shock if written and acted as the story demanded
