After watching dozens of gay themed films, I can easily spot a daisy among the grasses. And I genuinely believe it belongs to the latter, with “us against the world” love story. I WAS WRONG. This movie has wring my senses so much about LIVES of homosexuals in country with ruthless views of gay people. I am thankful that this movie was told to the world, captured beautifully, and created heavily in romantic drama. I would never look at gay movies again similarly after watching this. As for the title? I have zero idea what it meant until the last shot of the film. “OUT IN THE DARK”. Brilliant title, amazing actors, riveting choice of hand-held camera angle.
Having an undergraduate thesis on gay people, I know gay rights are non-existence in Middle East, and other Arab/Muslim countries, but I have never walked, and looked, and be part of ones’ life that this film has made me. It is painful and heart-wrenching, and sickening that these things are REALLY happening as we speak.
This movie is a must watch.
A great film showing a stark reality
I watched this film during its premiere at the Haifa Film Festival only two days ago. The auditorium was jam packed and that has made watching it so much better, with the audience augmenting the experience. The film depicts a love story between a Palestinian psychology student, and an Israeli lawyer. The love scenes in the film are touching, and surprisingly direct, but as a straight man, I can say that they were not at all intimidating or disturbing. In my humble opinion the politics of this inherently tragic situation (a gay love affair in the midst of the Israeli Palestinian conflict) is where the film really shines. Being a fairly patriotic Israeli, I completely identified with the ‘act of treason’ of the Israeli lawyer at the end of the film. Though the ending of the film is bittersweet, I think it is the most hopeful ending one could hope for in the tragic situation of the Israeli Palestinian conflict as it is right now.
