Hate to break it to the ignorant gullible sheeple who have rated this film so highly, but this is a clear case of Israeli propaganda aimed at showing the ISraelis in a positive light and defaming the Palestinians.
Palestinian befriended by the kind Jew is a staple of many Israeli movies as they like to imagine themselves as saviours helping to civilise the natives, rather than the oppressive genocidal vermin they are.
On a side note, did the director, Michael Mayer forget or intentionally disregard the fact that Nimr, a Palestinian student in the West Bank, would never be allowed to reach Tel Aviv to meet Roy because, being a Palestinian, he’s not allowed to enter Israel on account of having a West Bank ID since there’s this little thing called the freakin’ occupation. This tiny fact could make the whole script fall apart. How is Nimr ever supposed to meet Roy now? How are they ever to fall in love? Surely this movie can’t happen if Nimr can’t get to Tel Aviv. Well, why can’t he get to Tel Aviv? Oh, that’s right. The occupation…… Roy should be familiar with it. After all, like any good Israeli he probably put in his required time in the IDF since its mandatory for all Israelis. I wonder How Nimr feel about falling in love with a baby killer?
