The Syrian Bride

Has anyone seen this movie? It looks quite interesting . Here's the trailer

"I love the game, I love the thrill, I love the "Go Venus`."
"It takes a lot of work to get to this level, so while I can play I'm going to play."

Very enjoyable movie, starring the wonderful Hiam Abbass. Gives you a nice insight into the kind of divided existence of many Arab families on opposite sides of the border. In this case, the family is Druze. It's very different from an earlier "wedding movie" from that part of the world called "Wedding in Galilee" - another insightful movie.

Here's a link from NPR of an interview with the director, Eran Riklis:
