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.

David & Fatima definitely worth seeing
22 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I tend to agree with comments written here. Although this movie has been made in other ways; including West Side Story, the backdrop of Jerusalem and the realistic quality of combining the tensions of the city and the differences between Jew and Muslim, make the film compelling.

The two lovers (David & Fatima) are an attractive couple and although knowing the story and therefore the outcome, I found myself rooting for the two of them thinking that maybe the storyline would offer a twist that would surprise me.

The music was terrific too and being something of a film score buff, I intend not only to try to locate the soundtrack, but will definitely buy the DVD once it becomes available.

Highly recommend!!!!!!
