Product Description


Deleted Scenes
Interview with The Cast


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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling drama from Israel November 9, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Different Reality for Gay People December 7, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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 ! ! !

5.0 out of 5 stars Full Service Gay Movie November 30, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great film November 22, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Complex and Dark Love Story March 25, 2014
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Love Story Against All Odds March 23, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As others who viewed this movie, it's a love story between two men who must over come all odds to love each other. The acting is very genuine that it convinced me of the deep devotion each man have for each other. The privileged Israeli gay partner sacrifices his career and family relationshIp to save his Palestinian lover. I won't go on and spoil it for those who have not seen this movie. It's a must see movie with two handsome leads. I wish a sequel from the would be made, but the end will leave you satisfied nonetheless. I also, learned that Israel is one of the most gay friendly country in the world. The government there actually sponsor and fund theIr annual Gay parade. It makes me want to visit Israel.
