TIFF '12 Ambitious film tracing the impact of Palestian/Israeli relations on a young Quebecois doctor with contacts on both sides of the checkpoints/barrier wall. Framing device works well with a nice twist and film features a solid lead in Evelyne Brochu. In the end the picture offers no solutions (how could it) but does certainly seem to favour the oppressed over the oppessors. A worthy addition to the subject.
A refreshing take on conflict, loyalty and alliance told through the eyes of a French obstetrician working behind the lines in modern day Palestine. It's complex, gritty and ultimately devastating. The final turn, whilst possibly a bit of a stretch, feels non-the-less poetically true. Solid performances, beautiful camera-work and complimentary sound design. 4 stars
