Strong, unusual even hopeful documentary on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
30 July 2011 | by (US) – See all my reviews

That unusual thing; a documentary on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that manages to be hopeful (if still heartbreaking).

It focuses an various groups' attempts to find way to forge bonds and end the hatred.

Most touching is the group for bereaved parents from both side of the conflict who've lost children in the fighting and who come together to share their pain.

Somehow the film as a whole didn't have quite the overwhelming emotional impact it seemed to be headed for, but still a very good, important and worthy documentary.
