International incident on the terrace

A petty fight between Lebanese Christian Tony and Palestinian refugee Yasser, quickly escalates into an intense legal confrontation as decades of war, trauma and seemingly insurmountable cultural and religious differences are brought into play. Director Ziad Doueiri paints the Middle East as a complex intersection of cultures and religions where the personal and the political are always intertwined, in an explosive and thought-provoking political drama which gained Lebanon its first Oscar nomination for best foreign language film last year.
