What are critics saying?
Antic, puzzling and disturbing film.
A one-of-a-kind experience, a Molotov cocktail of a seriocomedy.
Suleiman isn't much for words, but when he's ready for action, there's no hiding his anger.
A movie of long, expressive silences, Divine Intervention articulates things that have never been articulated, at least on the screen.
Sly and corrosively funny political black comedy.
About the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but it treats war as a cosmic joke and its participants as hapless but recognizably human clowns.
A mordant and bleak comedy, almost without dialogue, about Palestinians under Israeli occupation.
The Divine Intervention of the title lies somewhere between hope and fantasy. In a world in which Santa Claus is assaulted in Nazareth, what do you have left?
The Academy accepts submissions only from real countries, and Palestine isn't one. This is as good a joke, and as dark, as anything in the movie.
