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

Incredible reality

The funny thing is people of Palestine live this for real, it is not just a movie, there are hundreds of similar stories to Omar. Great real acting, very close to reality, no cliches, real locations, fantastic script and just a great movie overall. It is a pity they did not win an Academy award.

Great Movie!

Very good movie. The plot is great. It's an unordinary love story, far from the Hollywood big productions. I love the play. Awesome job.

Great Movie! Highly recommend

Suspense, Action, Love Story, Deception all in one movie. I wish more of these were made.
