Critic Reviews for The Time That Remains

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (15)

Suleiman takes the approach of gentle observer, neither condoning nor confronting -- not violently, at least. Start with humor and perhaps empathy will follow.

Living in a part of the world where politics, and the pursuit of politics by warring means, are the rule, director Elia Suleiman is the exception.

Despite its abundance of deadpan and absurdist humor, "The Time That Remains," a look at the Arab-Israeli conflict from a Palestinian perspective, was clearly made with a sorrowful heart.

Suleiman's obvious gift for cinema makes you wish that in connecting so personally with his past, he'd occasionally reach out to the audience, too.

To keep a steady gaze, the film suggests, is not just a virtue but a form of orderly protest, when your world is breaking apart.

Throughout, Suleiman contemplates how much has changed in his homeland since the Israeli declaration of independence in 1948, and how the natives have tried to maintain some continuity.

I have seen a lot of film festival movies in past 4 years, but this one I just didn't grasp the point of the story. Set in Israel and the film writeup says a of a fanilys triumps and tragedies. This is not what I saw. I saw a modern day israel and a changing theme throughout the whole movie. 3 stars

A boring, blatant, trudging piece of anti-Israel propaganda which is not worth the time to remove from the mailer.
