Directed by Hany Abu-Assad, Paradise Now is a film about two Palestinian men preparing for a suicide attack in Israel. "The film is an artistic point of view of that political issue," Abu-Assad said. "The politicians want to see it as black and white, good and evil, and art wants to see it as a human thing."
A powerful film. The director delivers a strong insight into a very difficult subject with brazen honesty and straight forwardness, while maintaining a tension and drama that makes it impossible not to be stirred by the film. Making this film without falling into the pitfalls of political correctness or propaganda is an achievement in itself.
Fantastic movie. A must see for everyone!
