"Melodrama is where there's a good guy and a bad guy. Tragedy is where there's no bad guy." The movie argues that the Israel/Palestine conflict, though it should be viewed as tragedy, is too often viewed as melodrama in the Western press (French, in this case). There's plenty to think about on the way the media works and on Western views of Israel, of Jews, and of themselves. Unfortunately this explicitly partisan movie will mostly be seen by people who already agree with it. Maybe there are subjects that are so polarizing that nothing useful can be said about them. I hope not.
