A touching and informative documentary serving as a harbinger to the Palestinian Intifadah.
1 August 1999 | by (Mississippi, USA) – See all my reviews

This documentary is a poignant and thought provoking presentation of the tragedy of the Palestinians, a people who who have been oppressed and subjugated in the name of "justice" for another people, the Jews of the Diaspora(exile). It is masterfully narrated by one of the finest stage and screen actresses of our time, Vanessa Redgrave. Her exuberant theatrical voice is so convincing of the need for our understanding to the plight of a proud and noble people who have been denied their right to self-determination by a military occupation backed by special interest forces in the West.(p)

At a time when Israeli and Palestinian leaders are negotiating a peaceful settlement to respect the national aspirations of both peoples, this documentary serves as a harbinger to the events that have led to the dramatic developments of the past decade. If anything, films such as THE PALESTINIAN enhance and broaden our knowledge and understanding of world events and should be a useful educational tool for the layperson. Thanks Vanessa for your efforts in informing us of a human tragedy and your call for a just solution! It is a must see.
