A humorous, heartbreaking film that explores life among the Israeli Arab community, shot largely in homes and places in which Elia Suleiman's family once lived. Inspired by his father's diaries, letters his mother sent to family members who had fled the Israeli occupation, and the director's own recollections, the film recounts the saga of the filmmaker's family in subtly hilarious vignettes.

Elia Suleiman is either the Palestinian Wes Anderson or
Wes Anderson is his American protégé. A very interesting movie that devolves into a silent ending with the middle-aged Suleiman character staring at people and things.

could not finish watching it - too slow, boring and so far from the reality I have experienced. much better films out there showing the stresses, losses and issues in that part of the middle east.

This film by Elia Suleiman tells a personal story that spans 6 decades and 3 generations. He also stars in the latter part of the film - stone-faced most of the time, perhaps by design. Life in Palentine under Isaeli occupation is not exactly a light-hearted matter but the director repeatedly introduced some comical moments while telling the story of his family. A very interesting film for anyone who wants to have a glimpse into life in present day Palentine.
