A chance encounter in Berlin sparks an improbable, passionate affair between an Israeli man and a Palestinian woman in this critically acclaimed, bittersweet drama. Handsome Eyal (Liron Levo) and gorgeous Rana (Lubna Azabal, star of the Oscar®-nominated Incendies and Paradise Now) serendipitously meet when their backpacks get swapped on the subway during the 2006 World Cup finals. Over six days, they get swept away by romantic desire, soccer mania and competing political loyalties. When Rana suddenly return to Paris, Eyal must make some bold choices that could alter their lives forever. Strangers is based on the Sundance Award-winning short film of the same name.

But truly, the real reason I am writing this review is because it wasn't made that long ago and they have a severly asmathic son laying on the bed while they light up cigarettes? SERIOUSLY? Only ignorant people do that - in any culture or country. So, I'm just saying that it doesn't matter how adorable the lead actor is or how sympathetic the lead female character is, don't put smoking on the screen. It totally made me feel like she is a selfish mom who despite her son's asthma, would put him at risk by smoking whenever, whereever.
I did look past it long enough to finish the movie but I'm annoyed.
Back to this film where the Mid East conflict is a component, but not the actual killing and brutality, we have two main actors who would put THE WAY WE WERE to shame.
This actor is amazing and the emotional connection is dynamite. I don't think he is in KIDON, but I can see that if he were to act with Amos Tamam in a film, the theater audience would watch over and over again. Levon is an Israeli gem. Literally tall dark and handsome and I do hope he doesn't or hasn't let this go to his head. He can be filmed silently in a helicopter in KIPPUR and the muscles in his face, his profile, all say what words do not require. The same in STRANGERS.
GREAT FILM EXPERIENCE FOR ME.
