Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.
A nonlinear, fragmented, destructive, repeated and chaotic pattern to illustrate Palestine's fragmented identity.
Elia Suleiman beautifully utilizes Nazareth to represent an evidently less politicized area, while he portrays Jerusalem as a politically charged region. It generally shows the political conflict in Palestine but not in the stereotypical way or style. It shows that humour can be political too.
It is beautiful that Elia Suleiman gives us the chance to be familiar with Palestinians' life, their culture, and their daily experiences.
I felt that the film is slow in a way that tells us the film can't move on as the Palestinians can't and won't move on.
