Movie Info

The conflict in Palestine during the '70s provides the setting for this challenging political sci-fi film that centers on an alien woman from a distant galaxy who has come to make peace. As the tale begins, archival films of the "Black September," battles that leveled Amman, Jordan are shown. The PLO then blows up a jet and as the smoke billows in the background a woman is questioned for being there without a passport. A nearby journalist (with sympathy for the PLO) intervenes and takes her back to his hotel. She tells him of the mission and the two have a long and fascinating dialogue.

The excellent performances of Paterson and Swinton... lend Friendship's Death a credibility it does not always deserve.
