Omar

A must-see for those who value the cinema of commitment.
-Paul Ennis, Now Magazine
Omar often seems like the conflict's close-to-the-ground, Don Siegel-style B-movie, which can be a fresh slap across the face compared to the usual can't-we-get-along homilies.
-Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
Thriller palestinien, au scénario implacable, interprété par des acteurs impressionnants.
-La Croix
Film d’une force émotionnelle sans pareille (...).
-L'Humanité
Un récit à la tension dramatique sans cesse renouvelée et une réalisation efficace.

Omar is a Palestinian baker who routinely climbs over the separation wall to meet up with his girlfriend Nadja. By night, he's a freedom fighter ready to risk his life to strike at the Israeli military with his childhood friends Tarek and Amjad.
