CGiii Comment

So much...so much, in such a short space of time. And...not a word uttered by the face that matters.

This is exquisite film-making...perfectly cast, not a boy, not yet a man...with a humanity and the power to destroy. Will he betray...or, will he be loyal? To whom? To what?

Perfect, terrifying...and, heartbreaking.

The(ir) Blurb...

He is young and works for Israeli military intelligence. On headphones, he listens in on the conversations of Palestinians. The phonecalls of one gay couple in particular begin to fascinate him more and more. Privy to the complicated relationship between the two as it unfolds, he doesn*t know whether and, if so, in what way he should follow his feelings. For here, too, the private is political, and the most intimate things of all can lead to disaster.
