Similar in theme to the age old Romeo and Juliet, where two houses (one Jewish, one Palestinian) are alike in many ways. Both sons are determined, hard working and searching for that one thing that completes them. They find that in each other.
Deeply in love, they are faced with the hardship that makes the Israeli/Palestinian conflict what it is. Both sides making hard choices, and compromising principle in the face of what they see to be the 'greater good'. Ultimately choices must be made, and the consequences accepted.
Extremely well written, and both leading men make for a gripping and sensual viewing. Slow paced at first, the movie soon developed at rapid speed as the tragedy of the two lovers unfolded.
Certainly worth adding to your collection.
