About the Movie

Omar, a young baker turned freedom fighter, is accustomed to dodging surveillance bullets to cross the separation wall to visit his secret love Nadia. But occupied Palestine knows neither simple love nor clear-cut war. When Omar is captured after a deadly act of resistance, he falls into a cat-and-mouse game with the military police. As suspicion and betrayal jeopardize his longtime trust with accomplices and childhood friends, Omar must face painful choices about life, manhood and love.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A fraught film ... – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Mar 3, 2014

Fresh: It's told with a stark, pitiless clarity that leaves you with fewer answers than before. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Mar 13, 2014

Fresh: Abu-Assad offers no solutions here. Instead he paints a portrait of the daily rhythms of the occupation, an endless conflict that has seeped into every aspect of life in the West Bank. – Mary Houlihan, Chicago Sun-Times, Feb 28, 2014

Fresh: This gripping Palestinian thriller evokes Gillo Pontecorvo's The Battle of Algiers in its depiction of not only the psychological pressures faced by people under occupation, but the murky moral consequences of retaliating. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Apr 17, 2014

I can’t wait to see this film. The reviews have been fantastic.

I believe in second chances

awesome job, Adam is a rising star.. Leem is a great talent as well.. and I'd say to Hani, harder luck for the Academy-Award next time.. please keep trying because:

"I believe in second chances
I believe in angels, too
I believe in new romances
Baby, I believe in you"

- The Eagles: No More Cloudy Days

Good acting, good story, but propaganda

Well done movie with a good love story. I still don't buy the "occupied Palestine" premise. Unless they mean occupied by corrupt Hamas radicals. They don't btw. Israel is no saint in this situation but let's be real...
