Paradise Now

(Palestine/Netherlands/Israel/Germany/France, 2005, 92 minutes)

The last 48 hours in the life of two Palestinian suicide bombers assigned to a Telaviv bombing. Challenging melodrama drawn from contemporary headlines that refuses to choose sides and is suffused with a black, absurd humour that lightens its dramatic approach.
