Jewish Palestinian love story like romeo and Juliet
29 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I must strongly disagree with the two earlier comments and must commend the view for viewing, it is a most entertaining film. Yes, there is discomfort in perhaps associating the Romeo and Juliet story with the Christian and Muslim and Jewish religions in this way but the film delivers.

the bus explosion at the beginning is dramatic and there are many notable scenes depicting Israel and Palestine areas. The recruitment of Rommy as a terrorist is certainly questionable but the screenplay and script work for me and I had tissues plentiful at the ready at the end.

Enjoy the film for what it is, touching on Palestinian sympathies and the right for two people to try and love each other even if from different religions and in the face of opposition. This is a beautiful story in essence. The Israeli questioning at the airport and border control was very flippant but from experience I know that is how it is.

Don't miss this film. By the way, title 'Language of the Enemy' is much more appropriate than 'A House Divided'.

sad but memorable movie.
