Storyline

Khleifi interviews nine inter-faith and inter-racial couples in Israel, asking each where they met, how they have addressed religious or cultural differences in their marriage, how their families have responded to the relationship, and how they chose where to live. He also has a professor and three religious leaders comment: a sheikh, a rabbi, and a priest. The three religious spokesmen are dead set against inter-faith marriage, while the couples express themselves in simple terms about their partner's kindness and other human qualities.

Excellent entry into embattled area
9 April 2015 | by (Longview, Washington) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent film which shows that prejudice and dogmatic beliefs (in this case in social/familial matters through way of religion, mainly) exist even in the world of suicide bombers and orthodox hatemongers. Khleifi does a masterful job of showing us an unfair world within an unfair world.

This movie is a must see, also, for the fact that anyone trying to scrape up the dregs of Palestinian cinema has few options to choose from.

I'm curious why the people who have voted rated this movie like they did? One THREE, two TWOs, and three ONEs. Why?

I give this movie a 10.
