Format: DVD
The film technique of weaving a tapestry of lives and characters in a "Babel" style, to culminate in a finale where everything becomes that much clearer, is a new one to me. The film is not shot chronologically, which can throw you if you are as slow off the mark as me. But stick with it, as this film rewards perseverance in abundance. What a really, really pleasant surprise this film turned out to be. Set in the Israeli coastal town of Jaffa, which is an area rich in ethnic diversity, Muslims, Christians and jews converge into one volatile melting pot. This is a world where the background you are born into matters a lot! We learn of a Muslim man impossibly in love with a Jewish girl. Then there is a Policeman who is violent on duty but doting to his young child, haunted by the spectre of his missing brother. Another is an illegal immigrant whose seriously ill mother is dependent for a cure on his earnings. At first difficult to follow the film unravels to a fascinating conclusion, and in so doing gives us a clearer insight into the complex issues surrounding lives in so diverse a country as Israel.

The first thing that immediately struck me about this film was its realism. Some of the scenes involving tussles with Police Officers and a casual drive by shooting were just frighteningly authentic. At times it resembled one of those TV programmes where a camera follows Police officers around a busy city. Co written and directed by an Israeli jew Yaron Shani, and an Israeli born Palestinian Scandar Copti, the two use their shared knowledge to powerful effect. Both men clearly have a deep understanding of of the issues they broach.

This movie tells the story of a number of people of different religious backgrounds living in Ajami.

It is shot non-sequentially and divided into chapters so that the viewer is pulled right into the narrative in order to discover how these people's lives intertwine and ultimately affect each other.

The movie has the feel of a documentary but with a tight well-written script and superb acting. Scenes are cleverly revisited throughout in order to show different perspectives on the same events.

A captivating movie experience.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
In and around Tel Aviv, five characters, Jewish and Arab, are followed through parallel and occasionally intersecting narratives. This lead to a killing, the elements of which are clear from the beginning, but the reason for which only emerges at the very end. It would spoil the film for other viewers to give the game away. However, much of the film's interest lies in the glimpse it gives of life in a country obessed with security, and the maintenance of a border which has perverse effects.
