DescriptionA Palestinian seeks Israeli permission to waive curfew to give his son a fine wedding. The military governor’s condition is that he and his officers attend. The groom berates his father for agreeing. Women ritually prepare the bride; men prepare the groom. Guests gather. The Arab youths plot violence. One Israeli officer swoons in the heat and Arab women take her into the cool house. A thoroughbred gets loose and runs to a mined field; soldiers and Arabs must cooperate to rescue it. As darkness falls, tensions between army and villagers rise, and the groom’s wedding-night anger and impotence threaten family dignity and honor. Can cool heads prevail?

    Not sure why this one is here, but it’s good one. It is hard to find Palestinian cinema but would love to get more titles.

    Thank you, very long time since I see this movie.

    If you want standard Hollywood action or comedy, this movie not for you. This strange movie but good, something for everybody- quality, erotic, tradition, politics…
