The Attack

Recommended

102 min minutes

The Attack begins in a Tel Aviv police car that’s transporting an Arab doctor, Amin Jaafari, to his posh apartment, which is being searched for evidence. He can’t believe his stable and safe world has been turned upside down so suddenly and permanently. The night before, he was receiving an award for excellence in his profession; this morning, his wife, Siham, is suspected of being a suicide bomber who killed dozens. The Attack is moody and beautiful, and it makes no effort to find easy answers to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. The real story is the doctor’s heartbreak.
