Fast paced entertainment with a twist.
14 November 2013 | by fg-844-663209See all my reviews

I saw it at a small festival in Germany. It's really well done. The two actors, which were unknown to me before are very likable and believable and I also enjoyed the music. It's not the heavy intellectual and dramatic kind of film that you'd normally expect from a film about Israel and Palestine. It's more of a slapstick comedy with an air of sarcasm that sometimes make you stop laughing and start thinking. Maybe it comes closer to reality than any of us Westeners would believe? I really enjoyed it and with me the whole audience (it has won the audience award and the main award at the festival). So I can recommend it to anyone who doesn't have to many prejudices about the Middle-East.
