Paradise Now

FABULOUS movie! How many of us truly know or understand what the Israeli "occupation" of Palestine means? What is the mindset of a suicide bomber, how does it even happen? I truly think this is a brilliant film that really shows aspects that most of those outside of the Middle Eastern culture have no idea about.

Synopsis: Hany Abu-Assad's disturbing yet moving tale finds two men at a critical juncture in their lives. They've been drafted as suicide bombers in an upcoming assignment in Tel Aviv. Granted a night to spend with their families, they go home but are unable to say goodbye for fear of tipping their hand. But perhaps it isn't time for farewells yet as the two become separated during the mission and must decide on their own whether to continue or bail out.
