Drama
The coolest thing to come out of the Middle East since Mohammed, this film is a basically what Bunuel would have made if he’d lived in modern-day occupied Palestine. Mostly it’s devoid of plot, featuring a series of bizarre and occasionally hilarious vignettes of the humiliations suffered by the Palestinians. Occasionally, a love story surfaces wherein a silent man and speechless woman hold hands and watch as the guards at the checkpoint between Jerusalem and Ramallah harass the Arabs who try to cross over. Difficult to describe, but hard not to enjoy, Divine Intervention is political cinema that doesn’t sacrifice art and entertainment.
