Mohammed Abou Nasser, Tarzan Nasser Palestinian Territory, 2015

msmichel's rating of the film Dégradé

Preferred this when it was called 'Caramel' a few years ago. The Nasser brother's debut feature feels derivative and though featuring some fine turns by its mostly all woman cast fails to become the riveting picture it could have been. The amazing Hiam Abbas impresses here as does Victoria Balitska. The idea of a 'life of siege' has been done much better with greater maturity and reflection.
