Disappointing and sexist
17 February 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

There is a good movie to be made of the Israel-Palestine conflict; but this is not it. The leading character is portrayed as a cipher, whose opinion sways according to which of her lovers -- the public prosecutor, or her Palestinian client -- she most recently slept with. It is an insult to the few Israeli women lawyers courageous enough to defend Palestinian clients, and I think they should sue for defamation.

Although it is laudable that Costa-Gavras attempts to show the suffering, and the struggle, of Palestinians expelled by the nascent Israeli state in 1948, this movie almost reduces them to bit players in the internal conflict of a confused woman. It does a disservice to both the Palestinian struggle and its own heroine. Costa-Gavras should be capable of much better than this tawdry pot-boiler.
