What elevates [it] ... is the gentleness with which Binisti approaches his difficult subject.

Although smoothly directed, A Bottle in the Gaza Sea has little visual personality or dramatic urgency.

The film's notion that a little understanding and a lot of e-mailing would basically solve the Middle East crisis ... is as reductive as it is utopian.

Director Thierry Binisti has chosen two excellent leads in Shalaby and Bonitzer, both of whom exude intensity and charisma. The supporting cast is also uniformly solid.
