Product Description

Winner!! - Best Film, 2004 Locarno Film Festival
Winner!! - Best Actor, Mohammad Bakri, 2004 Locarno Film Festival
Winner!! - Fipresci Jury Award, 2005 Intl. Federation of Film Critics

Mohammad (Mohammad Bakri), his wife (Areen Omari) and their five children live in a large, isolated house located mid-way between a Palestinian village and an Israeli settlement. Viewed as a strategic lookout point, the house is forcefully taken over by Israeli soldiers, who confine Mohammad and his family to a few downstairs rooms in daytime and a single room at night. Against his wife's wishes, Mohammad decides to keep the family together in the house until the soldiers move on, creating division among his kin and a precarious relationship with the soldiers. Italy's pick for the 2005 Foreign Film Oscar competition (before being disqualified by the Academy because the primary languages were not Itlaian), Saverio Costanzo's first feature is a powerful and haunting psychological thriller.
