Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The movie is committed to revealing the world through Komona's eyes, and you never feel a taint of voyeurism or condescension. It stays true to her.
Fresh: A powerful and upsetting portrait of a young girl compelled into unimaginably horrific circumstances.
Fresh: The powerful things we expect from "War Witch" are as advertised, but what we don't expect is even better.
Fresh: War Witch gives us a continent's tragedy in a young girl's face.
only in French? No subtitles?
iTunes please let's be efficient?
The movie title and summary shows up in English. Rent it and the movie is in French with no subtitles.
I guess I better stop renting from iTunes. This is very bad misinformation and for those who do not speak French useless to see such important movie without understanding the dialogues. Thanks very much!
Fantastic + had subtitles!
What an outstanding film!
I am sorry that some people seem to have trouble with subtitles - I got the subtitles no problem!!
It seems a shame to rate a movie low because of a technical glitch...
contact customer service if this happens because it definitely has subtitles.
This is really fantastic...and Canadian ..we should support movies like this.
This movie does not have subtitles in English as Advertised. Do not rent if you dont speak French!!! Very poor of Apple to catch people like this.
