Storyline

Nimer and Roy are two gay men on opposing sides of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict who fall for each other. Much as they'd like to be left alone, both political conflict and orthodox beliefs will not leave their budding relationship untouched, with most of the egregious circumstances befalling Nimer, whom security forces pressure into helping them by stripping his access to education and threatening to leave him without family. Through his eye-witnessed death of a friend, Nimer knows he can't oblige. Can love find a way through this no-win situation? Written by statmanjeff

surprising
24 May 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

...first, for its impeccable structure, for the sensitivity expressions, for lovely performances and great , nuanced story. A bitter love story, coherent, profound and touching. It is not easy to define it but it has, off course, many precious virtues defining it. A political drama as stage and a pledge for love to sacrifice. Nothing new but profound usefull. Sure, it is not exactly a surprise from Israeli cinema. But it is real good. It has its holes and use cliches but it really works. And that does it interesting. For storytelling. For beautiful performances. Short, a nice surprise
