Hva Vil Folk Si (What Will People Say)
Growing up in Norway means 16-year old Pakistani girl Nisha (Maria Mozhdah) lives a double life – a dutiful daughter and a typical Norwegian teenager. Unsurprisingly, it can’t last. Following a showdown with her parents, Nisha is kidnapped and sent to stay in Pakistan.
Coming of age stories are nothing new, neither are culture-clash parables, yet ‘What Will People Say’ evades the usual parade of clichés to acquit itself extraordinarily well. The assured cast turning in a timely and thought-provoking take on the usual set-up of rebellious teen and intransigent parents.
