This was one of those movies I went to see just to take a break from work, and I was not expecting to be as moved as I was. Ali Suliman was especially good, but so were several of the supporting actors and actresses. I don't want to say too much and give it all away, but this is definitely a must-watch movie.

So incredibly real its frightening. But so well done and so beautifully told, this is a story we all need to see. How there exists the hate for America alongside Palestinians who only want good for their people. so suspenseful yet informative. I loved it!

We found The Attack interesting, but definitely would not say that it's a "must see."
Despite all the deaths we didn't shed a tear. And the story didn't shed any new light
on Israeli/Palestinian relations.

This confirms the realization that peace between the Palestinian's and Jews is a dream...too much history of hate and suspicion.

Women make the best suicide bombers. If kill children even better. The Attack, a film by Ziad Doueiri, deals with such bombings.
The Attack gives away all its plot secrets in the first act. Climax hit, mystery solved, we are out to examine why. Amin Jaafari is an Arab surgeon living in Jewish Tel Aviv. There is a bombing and Jaafari’s wife disappears. All things point to “oh no, she’s been killed.” Shockingly, it’s way worse.
Jaafari tries to persuade others could his wife could never do anything so terrible, but she writes him a letter, mailed pre-bombing- “Don’t hate me.”
Where we go from there is through Jaafari’s own journey for answers. He tries to come to terms with his wife as a mass murderer while at the same time still being madly in love with her. Jaafari’s fall from grace is a vivid representation that tragedy can strike to anyone, at any time. After seeing this film we are left with a striking awareness of our own vulnerability.
