The Insult uses its familiar courtroom drama framework to deliver a hard-hitting statement on modern Middle Eastern politics that's as gripping as it is thought-provoking.

Movie Info

In today's Beirut, a civilian dispute blown out of proportion finds Tony (Adel Karam), a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser (Kamel El Basha), a Palestinian refugee, facing off in court. As the media circus surrounding the case threatens a social explosion in divided Lebanon, Tony and Yasser reconsider their values and beliefs as revelations of trauma complicate their understanding of one another.

Audience Reviews for The Insult (L'insulte)

½

A slowly absorbing courtroom drama that could have been a bit more well polished, especially considering the way it tries to force our sympathy towards the two characters, but I do love how it shows that a personal conflict can reveal so much about something more complex than it seems.
