Good world cinema about Palestine
10 October 2017 | by jerrypike-09559See all my reviews

Well worth watching to normalise your view about Palestine and what life is like for Palestinian people when they are not at war with Israelis, which is what the news seems to focus upon in the main.

It operates on various levels and is well put together. Another good movie to undo the stereo-typing that tends to afflict the reporting of communities and countries around the world.
