Imagine a blissful life taken away: Story of an Arab man who's assimilated into Israeli society but finds out that his wife was a suicide bomber. Nothing new here about the conflict, fair portrayal of the sides, thought provoking without solutions.
The Israeli-Arab conflict is stripped to its most intensely personal level in The Attack, a haunting and heartbreaking meditation on violence, choice, love and duty that is one of the most remarkable films of the year.
The film unfolds like an endless argument, and in a way that's perfect; the unhappy union at the heart of "The Attack" isn't just the one that Amin and Siham had, but the forced one that that Jews and Palestinians continue to have.
Telling this story from the point of view of the perpetrator's anguished, bewildered spouse is an inspired idea, and it may work very well in Khadra's book. Suliman, however, is the wrong actor for the job.
The Attack turns into a listless verbal assault, batting easy back-and-forth arguments on fundamentalist dogma, bomber hero worship, the Occupation blues, etc., that simply rehash the usual talking points.
