Storyline

Over twenty years after Lily and Nira were raped by the same serial rapist, an unexpected encounter brings them together. Single mother Nira, a reserved television editor, comes across charismatic Lily, a left-wing activist who is helping Palestinians harvest their olives. So intense is the chance meeting, that Nira finds herself digging into her past, stirring up memories, and trying to bridge the gap between the person she once was and the person she has become. Nira becomes increasingly obsessed with her 'mission' to find out all she can about the rapist. She discovers that although he behaved violently towards all the women, the press named him the Polite Rapist and described him as "well-mannered" since he forced his victims to spend hours with him, talking to them and raping them in turn. Lily, bound up in a profound crisis in her marriage, tries to prevent the trauma from surfacing, but it penetrates every part of her life. Her relationships with her son, daughter and husband ...

The movie is based on real facts and has that drama about it. While the main actresses do their best to portray what they are going through (and a fine job by both of them), the movie itself, might have taken too much. More than it can handle. Trying to be truthful to an "event" (if you wanna call it that), is hard in itself, and when it is something as serious as this, even harder.

It is not a fail mind you. It just feels more at home with a TV movie crowd. And that might be saying more about our dramas on TV then this movie or the way we watch and absorb those movies, but it still has this feeling. A decent movie, with good acting and maybe a director with a good future ...
