Proffy Liebowitz, a militant yet sensitive eleven year old wants nothing more than for the occupying British to get the hell out of his land. Proffy and his two friends spend most of their time plotting ways to terrorize and/or blow up the British until one evening, while he's out after curfew, Proffy is seized by Sergeant Dunlop, a British officer. Instead of arresting him, he deposits him back home,but what ensues in the weeks to come is a friendship between these two foes. Proffy looks to Dunlop as a father figure as his own father is cold and remote. Dunlop, lonely and poetic, loves the spirited boy and they find lots to talk about in their meetings which Proffy must keep a secret from his friends and family. When Proffy's friends follow him one day and see that he has been visiting the detested enemy, they... Written by Lynn Roth

Substantive and Entertaining
3 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Really glad to see this movie is coming out. Saw it at a film festival where it got a standing ovation. Went with my daughter(age 14) and husband (age 68) and me (age 50) and all three of us just loved it. It deals with an interesting time of history, the British Mandate in Palestine and offers an even handed view. Performances are all around good. The little boy is exceptional and Alfred Molina is one of our favorites. The movie isn't sappy but it's hopeful, good hearted and VERY entertaining. You leave the theater feeling good. Would recommend to all my friends and wouldn't be surprised if this film picked up some real momentum.
