What sets Hava Kohav Beller's documentary apart is the intense colloquy at its disheartening heart: a series of discussions among young Palestinians and Israelis during a retreat in Germany.
Informative and thought-provoking.
This sometimes uplifting, sometimes depressing documentary looks at a unique effort to bridge the divide between Israelis and Palestinians.
If watching it is frustrating, so is the larger process of seeking understanding, or at least a nonviolent mutual tolerance.
The film is a jumble, with no sense of meaningful interaction ...
Everyone interviewed in this sobering documentary - Israeli or Palestinian - agrees that something must be done to stop the bloodshed in their land. But even talking about solutions proves problematic.
The state of affairs in the Middle East may actually be thornier than it seems from afar: that is the position this brave, intimate perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict seems to take.
The film could have benefited from some judicious cutting to tighten the narrative. It is not, as the marketing would have it, a suspenseful film. It is, however, a very depressing but necessary one.
The dialogue sessions are the heart and the best part of In the Land of Pomegranates.
Amidst tense airings of grievances, context is set against beautiful images of the disputed homeland, archival footage, and personal testimonials of clashes and cooperation.
An unwieldy, unfocused work that just gets lost in its own ambitious striving for objectivity and scope.
Young Palestinians and Israelis meet in Germany to discuss their differences. Background filming is ample. The dialogue between the two groups is same ol' with the result that they may leave the conferences with even more hatred.
