Original and entertaining
27 January 2019 | by garyszeSee all my reviews

I am not sure if this could really happen, both the science of it and the way these prison visits are supposed to be really conducted, but it is a smart tale to bring our attention to the Palestinian issue, which is being overshadowed by the many other political issues from that region. A clever and entertaining use of cinematic art to highlight one of our most pressing political problems. Highly recommended.
