After visiting stories of civil-war era Lebanon in his first feature, "West Beirut," and the trials and tribulations of a French Arab milieu in "Lila Says," Ziad Doueiri takes up the mantle of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
In "The Attack" he unravels the story of a successful Palestinian Israeli surgeon, Amin Jafari, superbly played by Ali Suliman ("Paradise Now"), who is confronted with the accusation that his wife is a suicide bomber. Arab countries have banned "The Attack" because Doueiri shot the film in Israel; they object to what they see as the "normalization" of relations between a Lebanese filmmaker and Israel.
