Storyline

Marie, a Canadian editor specialized in testimonies of Genocide survivors, starts to receive anonymous large envelopes with the narrative of Ali, a young Palestinian who grew up in a refugee camp in Lebanon. Intrigued, Marie investigates the origin of these envelopes and finds out who is the anonymous writer. This is how she establishes a connection with Joseph, a Lebanese worker hired to paint the offices. A strange relation develops between these two persons who come from very different worlds. But after a while, Joseph abruptly disappears and Marie, overwhelmed by the mission fallen on her, starts a journey into the past, through a small village in Lebanon, in the heart of a bloodthirsty culture were lies the key of all the enigmas.

Best movie ever on Palestinian issue
29 January 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

La Vallee des larmes is a heartfelt movie that grabs you by the throat and never let you go. I have seen a lot of films that talks about Palestinian issues, but never seen one with this depth, with such a pertinent and intelligent way of dealing with the subject, with a lot of feelings and emotion and yet in a very discreet way. I was amazed to know that the director is not Palestinian, because I thought the way the story was going deeper and deeper, that no one can ever tell something like that unless they've lived it. That's even more admirable, to be able to tell the story of someone else as if it was your own. I recommend it highly!
