A Newsday reporter finds love and adventure in 1980's besieged Beirut.
I absolutely LOVED this film. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. The story and direction are excellent. Michael Lerner is a true talent! It is very interesting to learn about what happened in Beirut at this time, and also what it is like for reporters who dive into the action.
The story is fascinating and very apropos to recent world events in the Middle East. The acting(especially Anne Parillaud) and editing(the fabulous Suzanne Neff) superb. The locations are fantastic. It is very hard to believe that this wasn't shot in war torn Beirut.
The cast too were very believable-wonderful character actors from all over the world.
I highly recommend seeing this film.
