ON THE OSCAR NOMINATION SHORTLIST FOR BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM

In today’s Beirut, an insult blown out of proportion finds a Lebanese Christian and a Palestinian refugee involved in a court case. The case grips but also bitterly divides the nation in the latest feature from Lebanese director Ziad Doueiri.

”It’s a bold and timely play with fire, but also a sensitive, good-humoured probe into human weakness – especially of the male kind.” – Lee Marshall, Screen International

“The Lebanese filmmaker’s followup to his masterful drama ‘The Attack’ is a fascinating, parable-like exploration of the tension between two facets of Lebanon’s community and the cross-cultural ramifications implied by their ridiculous feud.” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire

Language: Arabic (English subtitles)

Length: 1 hr. 50 min.
