Film Review: The Attack
And a broader question which the film does not fully address is whether or not there even is such a thing as a Palestinian identity. I felt that the director tries to gently touch upon this in a brief scene when the physician returns to his wife's home town, Nablus, on the West Bank. A smiling, giggling, mildly retarded man blowing on a whistle is scampering around the town square, playing at directing traffic. No one seems to mind, nor pay any attention to him. I suspect this is the director's allegorical attempt to underline the pointlessness of those who seek to identify themselves as Palestinians. Do those include the physician's wife and as the film ends, the doctor himself?
See the film.
