In Between (DVD)
Acclaimed drama about three strong, independent Israeli-Palestinian women sharing a flat in Tel Aviv.
Away from the constraints of their religion, their families and cultural traditions, these three women find themselves in a blinkered society.
At first glance, they appear to have very different goals and ambitions.
Laila, a dynamic laywer, is in a whirlwind romance with Ziad , who embraces her free spirit but becomes critical of the way she talks, dresses and smokes when his family are around.
Salma may have found love in the arms of trainee doctor Dounia, another woman, but only as long as they can keep their relationship secret from Salma's mother, who is desperate to marry her off, and her father who threatens her with talk of the madhouse.
As for Nour, she discovers in horrifying fashion just what is expected of the wife of an apparently upstanding citizen in a gruelling sequence that is made all the more alarming by director Maysaloun Hamoud's sensitive directorial discretion.
