The Source (2011)

Directed by: Radu Mihaileanu
Country: France

Plot: A comedy/drama set in a village and centered on a battle of the sexes, where women threaten to withhold sexual favors if their men refuse to fetch water from a remote well.
Quick comment: The awesome landscapes from a small Arabian village in addition with the valuable message that conveys, doesn’t make this a movie to remember. The courage showed is to praise but it opted for a speech that works as a cheap pedagogy about the women’s rights, which in certain moments become annoying. The images should have been enough to "talk" by themselves. Moreover, some scenes tend to be cheesy. Not so consistent but with respectable intentions.
