this film is criticized for having a white voice tell a Palestinian story - that hadn't occurred to me until I read the critics. I thought of it as a film showing a UN dr's reaction to the human rights disaster in which she was living and working and how she got drawn into helping one side of the conflict.

A Canadian doctor works at a Palestinian hospital and makes friends with an Israeli soldier and a Palestinian family. The doctor sees the humiliation, discrimination, and death experienced by mere Palestinian civilians trying to eke out survival with Israeli soldiers surveilling every little step they take. Our Palestinian family gets a rare visit to their bulldozed home to reminisce about their life in their Palestinian village before the Israeli’s stole their land and forced them to move penniless into the city. I don’t think this film will be on Likud’s top ten.

A good, heart-felt story that needs to be told! It's a sad commentary about the injustices going on in the present Palestine, perpetuated by the Israelis! Palestine is constantly occupied and terrorized; its inhabitants are very frustrated and feel/are 'imprisoned,' unable to enjoy their own land, or even see their own Sea! Many people suffer and die unnecessarily, due to the lack of proper medical care available to them and due to the complete indifference and lack of compassion by he occupied forces: the Israelis! The very long prison sentences given out for the various offences to the Palestinian men are outrageous, and clearly unjust! And so is the huge number of the Palestinian prisoners is clearly meant to subjugate the Palestenian people! That just makes the Palestinians people' rage grow.. understandably so! The fact that the Palestinians blow themselves up on the Israeli soil (for different reasons than here in the West), while I strongly disagree with killing of the other innocent Israeil bystanders, I understand their feelings of hopelessness and lack of recourse available to the Palestinians! It is also very hard to leave Palestine, even for education! The question is: how would we feel in their place, if it was you or me??

This film from Quebec was shot in the Jordan/Palestine area. It is a human drama with the Israel-Palestine conflict as the backdrop. Chloé is a Canadian doctor working in a woman's clinic, in some UN role. However, the lead actress, with her liking for an occasional cigarette, simply was not convincing as a medical practitioner. Her ultimate role in helping to plan a suicide bombing is a bit far-fetched as well. And I still don't know why she was there in the first place. However, the film does allow one to get a glimpse of what life is like in the conflict area. For this reason it is worth watching. Subtitles.
