ldh's review

Depending on your political spectrum, you could see this as a good film that portrays the senseless lives of young Palestinians at the hand of an oppressive Israeli regime, or a piece of propaganda that chose easy narrative paths with its obvious politics. Aside from decent camera work and very good performances, it's hard for me to watch this and remain sympathetic.
