First of all, a huge thank you to the filmmakers for smart a wise movie! It is a rarity today. Film and drama, and Thriller. and very cleverly removed. I recommend to view all especially those who are not used to forgive others. The time has come to learn that. The script of the film is definitely interesting, although it reminds me of Gogol's classic story — "How quarreled Ivan Ivanovich with Ivan Nikiforovichem". Because of one offensive word. Also the heroes of the film Ziad Duari "Insult" as would fight over nothing. However, if the litigation dragged on inconclusively the first to old age, then Dueri confidently brought their version to the extreme conflict of heroes, the triumphant climax and a very touching denouement. All the film is very serious, it is built not only the psychological component of the conflict, but on political events, on the history of relations between Lebanon and Palestine. You have little insight into their story. It would be interesting. In the development of the General sentiment of the characters and the plot in General definitely helps talented music of French composer Eric Neve. Her gentle leitmotif is impossible not to notice; it sounds, where it should be, in the desired tone, deftly embedding in acting. And it is a huge plus to the good taste of the Director. Liked all the actors, their virtuoso acting school. At least me, the film" an Insult" is in list second place in the emotional and intellectual impact of the I have watched a lot of films in this year.

Have "Abuse" there are so many correct and humane motives, but the Director and screenwriter not correct skills in order to make the story more interesting. The Middle East is now becoming more more voiced in the movie, but not means each film producing region should receive the formal honor from critics, to besides, more than sure would find much better representatives for the global competition.

Lebanese-Christian stuck with the foreman of the Muslim-Palestinian word for word — now it comes to court. But the situation is that in Lebanon it is now fashionable to be Christian party and the UN and the world community protects the Palestinian refugees. Actually, if the film was or geopolitical problems, or a humanitarian catastrophe in Palestine, or the civil conflict in Lebanon — this would seriously, the word and perhaps was of greater importance.

However, the Director has focused his story exclusively around hard-nosed confrontation between the two men, where each smooth share became guilty in that their business already comes to the President of the country. However, in "Insult" unfortunately no harmony, their interaction — whether a dramatic note or comic, any contribution in the General setting of the story is not make Yes altogether, there remains a certain feeling of indifference, though abstracts, are in the scripts a lot of important and exciting topics.

Alas, even the category of the best foreign movies on  the"Oscar" not able to please their representatives, if all the ceremony joined in a conspiracy and decided to play tent, with the climax of the ceremony the figurine "Form of water". The film Ziad Duari you can watch the film unobtrusive and available for understanding, however, as from the themes of abuse in the culture of this region and the problems there — expected something more serious.
