Editorial Reviews

Amin Jaafari (Ali Suliman), an Israeli Palestinian surgeon, fully assimilated into Tel Aviv society, has a loving wife, an exemplary career, and many Jewish friends. But his picture-perfect life is turned upside down when a suicide bombing leaves nineteen dead, and the Israeli police inform him that his wife Sihem (Evgenia Dodena), who also died in the explosion, was responsible. Convinced of her innocence, Amin abandons the relative security of his adopted homeland and searches for the truth about her life and death, uncovering a startling secret. Bonus Features: Interview with Director, Ziad Doueiri, Photo Gallery, Theatrical Trailer, In Arabic & Hebrew with English subtitles.

Customer Reviews

The acting is pretty good in this movie.
Amazon Customer
Being like everybody else is only an illusion and will only hold as long as everything is OK but will crumble as soon as there is a problem.

God and His Son, the One and Only "Begotten" Son, Jesus the Christ, have NOTHING to do whatsoever with mans religions.

Format: DVD
I tend to avoid watching most political dramas. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy them; rather, because I’m already kinda/sorta set in my convictions and those convictions don’t tend to match up with an awful lot of Hollywood and/or mainstream releases that are political in nature, I honestly figure, “Why bother?” I resent the typical Tinseltown indoctrination films – you know, the ones telling me how to think, to live, to pray (should I choose to). I prefer living my life freely with my own code of morality, but I’ll occasionally get wrapped up in that rare film that appears to only use a politically-charged situation as a backdrop with which to explore human conflict.

THE ATTACK – it’s apparently based on some relatively controversial international bestseller – is one such film. Sure, it’s easy to see how some might be either offended or insulted by some of the themes wrapped up in here; but I was able to look past much of that into the eyes of a man (largely because of a gripping, stirring performance) tortured not only by what he had seen but also more so by what he hadn’t.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

Amin Jaafari (played with simmering intensity by Ali Suliman) is a physician in Israel. Although he’s of Palestinian descent, he’s clearly embraced what life has to offer him and his wife Siham (a radiant Reymond Amsellem). On the cusp of greatness, he’s being served an award for an exceptional career in medicine.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Andrew Ellington VINE VOICE on December 5, 2013
Format: DVD
Racism, terrorism, controversial societal conditions; these are all hot-button subjects and ones that get a lot of attention whether it be in the news, in social forums or in the movies. Since 9/11, these have become even more common, and while not every film that revolves around terrorism stakes its home in the 9/11 tragedy, it’s safe to say that they owe the attention they receive to the social consciousness every living person took home from that event.

A film like ‘The Attack’ had a great opportunity to answer some questions that many unrelated to the issues at hand may have about the social environment in the Middle East. With a strong core story that follows one man’s quest to uncover the truth about his wife’s involvement with a terrorist act, ‘The Attack’ sets us up for what promises to be a very informative and engaging thrill ride.

Sadly, the ball was dropped here.

For me, ‘The Attack’ suffers from too many unanswered questions and not enough clear character development. When we get to the big reveal, everything feels so anticlimactic that we are left just as inquisitive and confused as we were in the beginning, even if our main protagonist acts as if all questions are answered. It also fails at depicting a logical series of events, for the actions of the protagonist are never met with a reasonable end. In other words, there is no way that he would have survived his abrasive inquiry of such a quiet and secretive faction and yet, he walks away with his answers, unscathed. It makes very little sense, the way that this was mapped out, and it saddens me that the approach was more along the lines of a non-plausible Hollywood thriller as opposed to a direct and gritty look at real life scenarios.

Format: DVD
"The Attack" (2013 release from Lebanon; 102 min.) brings the story of Amin (play by Ali Suliman), a successful Arab-Israeli surgeon who is about to receive the highest honor any doctor can receive in Israel for his professional accomplishments. His wife Siham (played by Reymond Amsalem), also Arab, is not with him, though. The next day a suicide bomber in Tel Aviv kills 17 people, including 11 children, and severely wounds scores more, when setting off explosives in a restaurant. Many of them end up in Amin's hospital and he tries all he can to save lives. Later that night, he is called back to the hospital. It turns out Siham was killed in the attack and all signs point to her being the suicide bomber. Amin simply refuses to believe it when pressed by the Israeli police. At this point we're only 25-30 min. into the movie. Was Siham a terrorist? Is Amin being set up by the Israeli police? Could Amin possibly have completely misread his wife? To tell you more would surely ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: first, the movie is based on the 2007 book of the same name by Algerian author Yasmina Khadra. I haven't read the book so I cannot comment on how this compares to the book. Second, many people are unaware that Arab-Israelis make up about 20 percent of Israel's population, and are often very torn in their feelings for their country (Israel) and their spiritual brothers and at times roots in Palestine and other Arab areas. Third, the movie does an excellent job exposing those tormented feelings of Amin as he is on a path to find out what really happened leading up to the attack.
