Ajami is an area of Jaffa where Arabs, Palestinians, Jews and Christians try to live together in an atmosphere that is -to say the least - electric. Omar, an Israeli Arab, struggles to save his family from elimination by a gang of extortionists. He also courts a beautiful Christian girl, Hadir, but marrying her is far from obvious. Malek, an illegal Palestinian worker, tries to collect enough money to pay for his mother's operation. Dando, an Israeli cop, does his utmost to trace his missing brother who may have been killed by Palestinians. Binj, Malek and Omar's Arab friend, suffers from being rejected by other members of his community for mixing with an Israeli girl. All of them are bound to meet violence.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Like an Israeli Amores Perros crossed with City of God.
Fresh: It has a complex, elliptical structure that uses unconventional filming techniques to tell a bleak and fatalistic story conveyed with an unnerving sense of verisimilitude.
Fresh: It's a film that rewards close attention, involving disparate characters whose lives intersect over the course of several chapters.
Fresh: Good intentions are one thing, of course, and good writing and filmmaking another. Ajami is lucky to have all three.
Best movie ever !!
A movie you will never forget.
