This movie is not a judgment against the Muslim religion but an unflinching critique of anyone who devalues women's lives or treats women as always inferior to men.

[T]he film ... belongs to Aynur. It's her life that matters. It's her voice that we hear. It's the loss of these that we feel the most...

This movie gives Aynur her voice back, if just for an hour and a half. And in doing so, it gives a voice to any woman who might be hurting, abused, or silenced.

Is there room for another film about honor killings? Director Sherry Hormann answers with a yes in her brisk, beat-by-beat depiction of the 2005 murder in Berlin of Hatun "Aynur" Surucu, 23, by her youngest brother.

Much more accomplished and watchable than Hormann's previous film about a real-life crime, "3096 Days," "A Regular Woman" owes much to its fine cast and impeccable technical package.
April 28, 2019
This is a serious, sympathetic attempt to engage with the life of a woman who, while she rejected her family's strict reading of Islam, loved them too much to entirely break contact.
April 28, 2019
Effective, if oppressively somber.
