The Attack

Doueiri, Ziad
Amin Jaafari is an Israeli Palestinian surgeon, fully assimilated into Tel Aviv society. He has a loving wife, an exemplary career, and many Jewish friends. But his picture perfect life is turned upside down when a suicide bombing in a restaurant leaves nineteen dead, and the Israeli police inform him that his wife Sihem, who also died in the explosion, was responsible. Convinced the official police report is wrong, Amin completely rejects their accusation but his conviction is shaken when he receives a posthumous letter from Sihem confirming her role in the carnage. Amin abandons the relative security of his adopted homeland and enters the Palestinian territories in pursuit of the zealots he believes recruited her. Nominated for Best Actor at the Seattle International Film Festival. Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. "The Israeli-Arab conflict is stripped to its most intensely personal level in The Attack, a haunting and heartbreaking meditation on violence, choice, love and duty..." - Cary Darling, Fort Worth Star-Telegram
