Storyline

Asya is a conceptual artist living in Manhattan, active in ex-patriot Middle Eastern politics and fearful of arrest for pro-Palestinian sympathies. Israel is shelling Beirut, her brother is there seeking escape. She meets Javier, from Mexico. They go to nightclubs, embrace in hallways, and begin a relationship. One of Asya's friends, who is to be married, believes her fiancé has been kidnapped - a rendition. Others are careful what they say in public. Aysa's mother organizes pro-Arab activities. A cab driver tells Asya to drop Javier and be with him. She receives word from Beirut. Can a person pursue art and a relationship while the imperialists are still alive?

beautiful 16mm, deadpan multiculti whit stillman feminist rocknrollah
14 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Excellent film. I saw it twice on the festival circuit and it made me laugh. It's beautifully made and touches upon things that nobody else bothers to deal with. Elodie Bouchez is phenomenal in it. A totally new perspective that's well done.

Although its milieu is privileged it's remarkably self-aware and hilarious in its exploration of class divisions and the various ethnicities in NYC. It's more than just the usual indie story of trying to find their way, much more assured, witty and political. An interesting feminist perspective, great shot structure and a sweet love story to boot.

Go see this film!
