This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
sehr berührender film, der auf subtile weise darstellt, dass es in diesem konflikt keine gewinner und verlierer, sondern nur verlierer gibt, schauspielerisch überzeugend dargestellt am beispiel der beiden frauenfiguren
There are no winners. What a film ! I have to think about it.
Hiam Abbass has a fantastic performance.
Why are we intoxicated with „Planet of the apes“ and such powerful films like this one are completely unknown.
7/10. Fine realism, telling a story with several dimensions to it. Carried by a great lead actress. I learnt more about Arab Israelis' life from this movie alone than from many years of following the world news. Major plot hole: It's not credible that the Israeli Secret Service would let the Defence Minister move into a new private residence first, only checking for basic aspects of security later.
I wish that on this web one could rate a film with 4 stars and a half, because this movie is a good one, and the perfomances were great, but I think the movie miss something. however is an excelent film.
