    One of those rare instances where the movie is better than the book.

  2. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film A Bottle in the Gaza Sea

    Une bouteille à la mer (2012), Film franco-canado-israélien tiré du livre "Une bouteille dans la mer de Gaza", de Valérie Zenatti. Avec Agathe Bonitzer, Hiam Abbass, Mahmoud Shalaby. https://www.facebook.com/zyx.mhclaes/media_set?set=a.745084095547736.1073741925.100001384583310&type=3

  3. msmichel's rating of the film A Bottle in the Gaza Sea

    Strong and balanced adaptation of Valerie Zenatti's novel that examines an unlikely friendship that develops over the internet between a young French Israeli girl and a Palestinian boy. It begins with a letter in a bottle and evolves into an unconsumated love affair of sorts. Film wisely never trivializes the conflict and somewhat demonizes both sides equally. Young actors Bonitzer and Shalaby both aces here.

  4. samanthawalden's rating of the film A Bottle in the Gaza Sea

    a frustrating and hopeful modern Romeo and Juliet, Agathe Bonitzer and Mahmud Shalaby are incredibly captivating
