Timely story idea
20 November 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at IFP this fall, and was quite impressed with it as an independent first film from its director. While parts of the film get bogged down by too much talk (using visual language and symbolism may have gotten some points across better than verbal discussion...almost lecture from the characters) overall I felt the performances from the actors were very strong and their characters well drawn by the writer/director. Humanizing the portrayal of Palestinians as ordinary people is a welcome subtext of the film.
