In July 2002, 22 Palestinian and Israeli teenage girls came to the U.S. to participate in a women's leadership program called Building Bridges for Peace. "My So Called Enemy" is a coming of age story about 6 of the program participants and how they reconcile their transformative experience in the program with the realities of life back home in the Middle East over the next 7 years. What unfolds is an emotionally-charged film about the human consequences of all conflicts--as seen through the eyes of 6 young women who are thoughtful, intelligent and articulate beyond their years.

Must see for all generations
4 April 2011 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie at a local film festival. I found myself with tears running down my face at the end.

This is a movie about humanity. And, it's a movie about hope and hopelessness all at once. It's a movie about the irony that exists in all of our lives. And, most importantly, it's about the power of communication, whether or not you ultimately agree.

One of the most amazing things about the film is that it follows the girls for seven years. So, you get to see what the long term effects of the peace camp are for them. The one thing that's missing is some understanding about how these girls found out about the camp. And, if they are hand chosen in any way. But, that is a minor complaint relative to the overall success of the film.

I highly recommend this film to anyone who is interested in the faces and stories buried deep behind the crazy "conflicts" that exist all over the world today, including in the Middle East. Bravo to the film maker!
