Only the badest Judens out there

I’m a sucker for peace-nick films.

I know this is really lame..but I loved this film.

Strangers (which happened to come out at the same time as the dumb ass American film “strangers” with Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman), is a film about an Israeli guy and a Palestinian girl who meet in Germany during the World Cup in 2006.

The film compounds every possible contemporary Israeli issue possible. It takes place in Germany and includes tons of subtle Holocaust references. It takes place during the second lebanon war…the implications are pretty obvious… But more interestingly I think the film subtly touches on the issues of Orthodoxy in Israel and the issue of the growing foriegn worker populations across the country….

I would watch this trailer in fullscreen…its worth it…..

also here is the original short film by Guy Nattiv that the film was based on…not as good….
