Alternate Title: Paradise Lost

Story: Yes Virginia, there are homosexuals in the Middle East contrary to what President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said about their non-existence in Iran. This breezy, uneven slice of Israeli – Palestinian life was written and directed by Eytan Fox and screams lovingly to the contrary.

A male Israeli Army reservist meets a Palestinian man at a checkpoint. Fast forward, they fall in love, work towards peace in the Middle East in some curious and humorous ways and generally have one heck of a time. The many problems between the two cultures rears its ugly head into their lives ever so often to spoil what might be called paradise.

All of the young people in the film are beautiful, dedicated to peace, love and tock ‘n roll. Seeing a film like this allows non-Israeli’s to see life as it exists in the real world instead of just the aftermath of the suicide bombings and checkpoint horrors that we are normally exposed to across the wires.

I don’t want to burst anyone’s bubble but the Middle East dilemma is going to take a lot more than love to fix its problems. That said, if you like to watch beautiful young people, see a side of the Middle East most of us never see – check out this entertaining, though flawed film.
