I missed this film when it played the VIFF, but for what it's worth, it's still called Rebelle -- at least up here. In fact, the VIFF synopsis calls the film "Rebelle (formerly known as War Witch)" -- so the current title of this thread would seem to have it exactly backwards!

Just wondering if we could change the title of this thread to reflect the fact that the film is *still* called Rebelle in its country of origin (and possibly elsewhere), even if it has been retitled for American audiences? For an example of how we've done this before, see, e.g., our thread on Shooting Dogs, which was retitled Beyond the Gates for American audiences.
