Storyline

A family of Iraqi-Israelis, each with his or her own weaknesses and determination, gathers for an Independence Day picnic. Their background stories are presented, reaching back as little as a few days or as far back as the War of Independence and the old country before that, and interlocking in ways that even they never realize.

Elegant compassionate modern and articulate
22 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie was shortlisted in the Best New Directors Finals at the Sao Paulo International Film Festival 2003 and in my opinion it should have won. It is a very original movie, complex and very articulate in its narrative. I am remarkably impressed by its tone and quality. An awsome film.
