In 2000, Palestinians could go into Israel on tours. About 20 people take a three-day trip through Galilee to the Lebanon boarder and then to Tel Aviv and Jaffa. They visit a kibbutz, a fort built during the Crusades, and the Mediterranean at Acra. We hear conversations about occupation and loss. Several have been in Israeli prisons. One visits the Rabin Memorial in Tel Aviv and tells a story about him. Another sees his mother in Lebanon through barbed wire. One woman's husband was gunned down by Israeli soldiers while walking home; another's husband serves a life sentence for killing an Israeli solder. An old man walks under a trestle and across a field to his father's grave. Written by <>

Quite moving
1 April 2003 | by (Roanoke, Va.) – See all my reviews

I was quite moved by this stirring film about a group of Palestinians who travel into Israel, many for the first time since Israel formed. The most moving character is the old man who does something very touching in the last part of the film. There is also a middle-aged man who arrested during the first intifada who converses with an Israeli cab driver in Tel Aviv and surprisingly talks about his fondness for assisinated prime minsiter Rabin and asks the cabbie to take him to his memorial. During this scene, one sees a spray-painted word which says 'murderer' in Hebrew under the picture of Yassar Arafat from a picture of his signing of the peace accord in Maryland along with Rabin and President Clinton. Another touching moment comes when a woman in her thirties talks about life without her husband, who is serving a life sentence for killing an Israeli soldier. This film, directed by an Israeli director, puts a human face on the struggle. I went to the the Turkish side of Cyprus in 1991. I am half-Turkish yet I felt sad that such a beautiful island was so divided between the politics of ethnic hatred. This film reminded of the reasons for such hostilies as vividly as the fictional Bosnian film "No Man's Land," which last year's Oscar for best foreign-language film.
