(us) wrote: A father violinist and son star soccer player, each independently active in pursuit of peaceful personal passions, become alienated by their own community. Overwhelmed by circumstances, the son Tarek finds himself on a suicide terrorist mission to redeem his father's tainted reputation. By the time Tarek is staring at himself in a mirror of shattered glass, he seems past the point of rescue. Interestingly, a charming, friendless Jewish girl at odds with her father and Orthodox community for her own loving, independent pursuit of life's passions, befriends Tarek, the soccer player, while he is secretly wearing the explosive vest. Burdened with the explosive vest, Tarek, still in communication with his family and the terrorist plotters, unexpectedly spends a weekend with the girl. At her request, he reluctantly stays by her side and shares stories with her. At one point, both raise the open-ended question of God's existence. A Jewish elderly man, his neighbor, and wife, also get to know a bit about the soccer player, Tarek. Sharing anger and disappointment at their world, the Jewish elders and Tarek, reveal parts of their own unforgiving past while helping each other with favors. The Jewish man and his wife had considered suicide to escape the painful loss of their only son, who died in training while the Israeli army refused to give him water. Water comes up multiple times in various scenes. The movie has some great lines, and what is left unsaid is even greater in meaning. In spite of the pain and poor judgement of humans, we see ostensibly helpless individuals take decisive action to help one another. irony, humor and wit blended with love, trust and friendship momentarily clarify the muddled, insane worlds, of the broken individuals, families, and communities in this beautifully crafted script. Vibrant, intelligent, and touching.
