Very enjoyable
23 November 2018 | by ptkolariSee all my reviews

For anyone familiar with the Middle East and/or with literary exposure to ill-fated lovers, there is absolutely nothing new in this film of an illicit affair between a Palestinian married man and an Israeli married woman. However, the story is entertaining and gripping, the cinematography excellent and the ideology evenhandedly absent. Some contrivance (even though it claims to be based on a true story), but no exaggeration or gore. Just plain movie pleasure. Highly recommend it.
