The Bubble

A chance meeting between Ashraf (Yousef 'Joe' Sweid), a Palestinian and Noam (Ohad Knoller), an Israeli reserve soldier, at a checkpoint leads to love. Ashraf clandestinely enters Noam's world shared predominately between his roommates, the gay Yelli (Alon Friedman) and the lovely Lulu (Daniela Virtzer). Director Eytan Fox exploits this relationship to show you the world of Tel Aviv through the eyes of leftist Isreali youth. Conflict fills this movie at a personal, sexual and political level all of which will leave you a little dazed.

Rating: * * +
