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.
