The nasty, little user below, akirakato has recently sent me a private hate message, and it goes like this....

(*quote*) "Hey! How come you've jotted down here my comment from "Dolphin Tale"? Are you stupid or what? An idiot? Insane? Just simply foolish or just kidding? What the heck do you think you have done such a bloody out-of-mind act?"

So - Go ahead and read my "Dolphin Tale" comment and if you can figure out WTF!? this nasty girl (who's always writing spoilers) is talking about I'd sure like to hear about it.

Written and directed by Elia Suleiman in 2009, this semi-biographical drama depicts the creation of the Israeli state from 1948 to the present.
Although it contains humorous scenes, you just can't laught out loud.
It seems like a suppressed or pessimistic kind of sense of humor during the violences of fighting.

Elia Suleiman is either the Palestinian Wes Anderson or
Wes Anderson is his American protégé. A very interesting movie that devolves into a silent ending with the middle-aged Suleiman character staring at people and things.

could not finish watching it - too slow, boring and so far from the reality I have experienced. much better films out there showing the stresses, losses and issues in that part of the middle east.

This film by Elia Suleiman tells a personal story that spans 6 decades and 3 generations. He also stars in the latter part of the film - stone-faced most of the time, perhaps by design. Life in Palentine under Isaeli occupation is not exactly a light-hearted matter but the director repeatedly introduced some comical moments while telling the story of his family. A very interesting film for anyone who wants to have a glimpse into life in present day Palentine.
