Cert: 15 Year: 2005 Length: 91 mins Language: Arabic/English
A double-bill, one fictional, the other fact, on the topic of suicide bombings. An act that baffles, angers, and sickens people the world over, yet seems to have no end of volunteers or supporters who see the perpetrators as martyrs.
Paradise Now tells the story of two Palestinian friends recruited for a fatal assignment that has unexpected consequences, a story told credibly and non-judgementally by director and co-writer Hany Abu-Assad. Depicting their mission in vivid detail he avoids creating both martyrs and monsters.
