SYNOPSIS

Out in the Dark is as much of a political and societal commentary as it is an original romantic story. Compelling and intimate, Michael Mayer's taut first feature follows a border-crossing relationship between an Israeli lawyer and an increasingly desperate Palestinian student.

Nimer, an ambitious Palestinian student in the West Bank, dreams of a better life abroad. One fateful night in Tel Aviv, he meets Roy, an Israeli lawyer, and the two fall in love. As their relationship deepens, they are both confronted with the harsh realities of a Palestinian society that refuses to accept Nimer for his sexual identity, and an Israeli society that rejects him for his nationality. When Nimer s close friend is caught hiding illegally in Tel Aviv and sent back to the West Bank, where he is brutally murdered, Nimer is forced to choose between the life he thought he wanted and his love for Roy.

Customer Reviews

It is well acted, directed and filmed.
WmDz
This movie talks a lot about the conflict of Palestines and Jewish people and the difficults in two people from different cultures love and have a life together.
Julien Sorel
The actors really make you feel as if you personally know them, and you are going through their struggles with them.
David Wright

I watched the DVD last night and found this to be a very compelling film, showing the difficulties of gay romance between an Israeli Jew and a Palestinian in Tel Aviv with dramatic flair. The two actors in the leads are wonderful. This is a low-budget, shot on location film that is loaded with atmosphere. There are moments of comedy as well, but the tone is generally serious and, in the last 15-20 minutes becomes an intense thriller, with an ending set-up for a sequel, which I hope these filmmakers will make.

EXCELLENT MOVIE! They did an amazing job depicting the lives facing gay people in different parts of the world as well as class status. The culture in Palestine is so brutal that for one to come out to their family is a death sentence. This is in stark contrast to an upper middle class family in Israel where being gay is at least tolerated. Nimer’s reality was raw and in the moment; his life was built around survival and fighting for a better future. Being from an affluent family Roy’s reality was much easier, more about pulling strings and having things handed to him. Still, the two men loved each other so much that they were willing to do just about anything to be together. This was a fantastic movie and I recommend it to everyone ! ! !

Social/political/romantic drama at its best. "Out in the Dark " is laced with suspense, murder, and violence that will keep you on the edge of your seat holding your breath. Immigration issues , cultural clashes, family dynamics, and homophobia make universal connections in this superb movie that could take place anywhere in the world . International relations have never been worst.

The lead actors are beautiful and believable. This is a full service gay movie.

This is a film about a relationship with its trust challenges but which endures them convincingly and sincerely. This is a tale told with great emotive power whilst being understated in many ways. The two leads are simply gorgeous on screen and compellingly render their story from start to finish. This is not simply a good film about a gay relationship, this is just a good film about what any relationship is founded on, true love. Highly recommended.

Format: DVD
I love foreign films, especially those that have engaging, well developed gay characters. This film is one of the best foreign films I've ever seen that deals with the disturbing and tense relationships in the Middle East. Both the main characters are compelling and interesting to watch and to get to know. Their relationship is beautifully chronicled as it develops. The last scenes are the most intense and riveting that I've ever seen, literally had me on the edge of my seat, not knowing how the story would end. I absolutely loved this film and will recommend it to all my friends and family. It's an important film to watch for many reasons. And it is brilliantly acted.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I watched "Out in the Dark" ahead of realizing what it was dealing with to find myself drawn into a intense and disturbing viewing experience whose context reminded me of Eytan Fox's "The Bubble" and "A Few Days of Respite," a Iranian film that left a stong impression at Boston's LGBT film festival. Out of this background came a foreboding that I could not expect the story's ill-fated couple to triumph over their separate and shared adversity. In spite of its being a real "downer", the movie was so well done-- truly compelling in its representation of a reality most of us can only imagine rather than deal actually have to deal with in our own lives--that I want to recommend it highly and hope it gets the attention and support it so richly deserves.
