Audience Reviews for Divine Intervention

  • Jan 03, 2010
    A thoughtful well paced drama with comedic bits outlining a very personal and tortured relationship between Palestinians at the wrong side of a checkpoint.

    Art drenched in mythological symbols,yes?Most certainly,and poesie is included on the humanitarian cycle.Suleiman inherits the Tati syndrome and with a few Keaton persona strife,the facial expression reflects the round-up of his marvelous essence.Divine Intervention is a groundbreaking achievement,Kaurismaki must be jealous not for the political satire but for the deadpan environment!!!

    Very strange film! It could be consider a drama because of the Palestine and Israel conflict. But could be seen as a comedy because of some very unexpected moments. The love story really makes you think about what real love is. Overall, it is very original and bold!
