Two young Palestinian men, unable to sustain a life in a world without opportunities, agree to become suicide bombers. The film tells the story of how these childhood friends become pawns in the Israeli/Palestinian war. This intense, well-made thriller was an official selection of the most recent New York Film Festival. It has been criticized by some for humanizing terrorists, but trying to understand motivations is not the same thing as approving the actions that results from them. This film is an eye-opener for those seeking information behind today?s headlines.
A heart-stopping story whose urgency is startling. - Los Angeles Times
