Storyline

Jerusalem: A city of contrasts and conflicts, where Arabs, Jews, Christians and Muslims all mix but seldom mingle. This is where David, a young Israeli Jew, and Fatima, a beautiful Palestinian Muslim girl, meet and fall in love. But in a volatile land that is steeped in tradition and soaked in blood, their love is forbidden. Despite their best efforts to keep their romance a secret, their friends and families find out the truth, and their reactions are swift and violent. David and Fatima must act quickly to avoid losing each other forever. Willing to risk all for the sake of love, they elope in a land where marriage between them is impossible and the consequences of being together - deadly. In this dramatic story of love, destiny, and the search for peace in the Holy Land, David and Fatima struggle to beat the odds and in doing so challenge not only their families but Fate itself.

beautiful moving shocking
22 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the music is wonderful. i got chills several times during the viewing. michael j. lloyd did an amazing job on the sound track. as for the topic of forbidden love in the middle east, i was moved. i've been told that the basis of this story is true and that people in the region really do deal with this topic as portrayed in this film. what a shame. danielle pollack and cameron van hoy were good in their respective roles. martin landau of course is a master and as such it goes without saying his content was flawless. did you know that the legendary tony curtis is in this flick?! that is worth the price of admission alone.lastly, i have never seen such a strong reaction to an ending as i did in this film. wow.
