A deeply heartening story of importance to our world today.
26 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

The film takes us on a romantic journey, set against the backdrop of hatred and violence in the Middle East. Adrian Padar and Cecilia Peck play star crossed lovers who try to overcome impossible odds to survive and to attempt to prove that their love can withstand the threat of death. An amazingly engrossing and compelling story that kept me on the edge of my seat and made me fall in love with the characters, who were so real that it was uncanny. I recommend this to all, and have shown this to all my friends. Should definitely not be missed an seen with friends, family and romantic partners. It is also a very good analysis of the ongoing problems between Arabs and Jews in Israel, that resonates for Americans as well, due to their involvement in Iraq and other Moslem countries.
