18 July 1999 | Brabo
| A pure and gentle depiction of growing up in an unusual place
A little boy and a young woman go through several portals of life, depicted as initiations, to learn that life and dreams are but aspects of one and the same, seen from different vantage points. This very classical tale unfolds against the background of occupied Gaza, where everyday life, though difficult enough, still has enough of a cultural backdrop to allow the musings of growing up to reflect a rich inner life. The film carries no political message except for those who seek it between the folds of the settings, and it is marvelously pure and gentle.
