| Grey Lemon
Yes I know a lemon isn't grey, but yellow (or green, if it ain't ripe yet), but I'm talking about the grey area this movie does try to shine a light upon, with more than a light human touch coming with it. You get both sides of a dilemma, that concerns the aforementioned (see English title) lemon tree(s).

The director and the stars where at the screening I watched. There were many questions, one concerned the message of the movie. Interestingly enough the director himself is a Jew. But he still sees the craziness of the Gaza/border to other countries. And he also had an "All-Star" cast, that shows that there must not be any hate between the races. And the movie itself raises a few questions, about a few hot topics. It's a movie worth watching, not only for those that are afflicted by the themes of the movie, but also for everyone else!
