Tal is 17 years old. Naim is 20. She's Israeli. He's Palestinian. She lives in Jerusalem. He lives in Gaza. They were born in a land of scorched earth, where fathers bury their children. They must endure an explosive situation that is not of their choosing at an age where young people are falling in love and taking their place in adult life. A bottle thrown in the sea and a correspondence by email nurture the slender hope that their relationship might give them the strength to confront this harsh reality to grapple with it, and thereby ever so slightly change it. Only 60 miles separate them but how many bombings, check-points, sleepless nights and bloodstained days stand between them?Written by
A decent attempt to the contentious issue of Palestinian-Israel conflict. In the first half hour or so, the movie tries to lay the groundwork by displaying the daily life on both sides of the wall. The stroytelling in this section is thin and becomes boring at times. The movie only picks up pace after detention of the male character as a spy suspect and becomes more interesting. The whole story, however is overly romanticized with its main theme: message in the bottle. In the borderless internet era where one can easily discuss such matters on online forums who'd need and use a bottle in the sea for messaging is behind comprehension.
