Abstract:

Two Palestinian men are recruited to take part in a suicide bombing in Tel Aviv.

"Saïd and Khaled are walking time bombs. With explosives strapped to their bodies, the two young Palestinians slip into Israel, planning a suicide mission in Tel Aviv. Anything or anyone change their minds? ... Tells the story of these two lifelong friends, and their mission of doom. Hany Abu-Assad directs, shooting this harrowing thriller in locations made equally harrowing by real-life missile attacks, exploding land mines, suspicious Palestinian factions and Israeli occupied forces, and the kidnapping of a crew member. ... Provides no easy answers. Instead ... lays bare the humanity and the horror for all to see, to ponder, and perhaps to change"--DVD sleeve.

"In [Nablus] on the West Bank, Saïd and Khaled, who have volunteered to be suicide bombers, receive word it will be tomorrow, the cell's first operation in two years. They're shaven and shorn, in black suits to pose as settlers in Tel Aviv for a wedding. Something goes wrong at the crossing, they're separated, and the action is postponed, long enough for renewed questioning of what they're about to do. Suha, the well-educated and well-traveled daughter of a martyr, challenges the action. She likes Saïd and has her own ideas. 'Under the occupation, we're already dead, ' is Khaled's analysis. Fate and God's will seem to drive Saïd. We must be moral, argues Suha. Can minds change?"--Internet movie database, as viewed on May 19, 2008.
