Storyline

Asya is a conceptual artist living in Manhattan, active in ex-patriot Middle Eastern politics and fearful of arrest for pro-Palestinian sympathies. Israel is shelling Beirut, her brother is there seeking escape. She meets Javier, from Mexico. They go to nightclubs, embrace in hallways, and begin a relationship. One of Asya's friends, who is to be married, believes her fiancé has been kidnapped - a rendition. Others are careful what they say in public. Aysa's mother organizes pro-Arab activities. A cab driver tells Asya to drop Javier and be with him. She receives word from Beirut. Can a person pursue art and a relationship while the imperialists are still alive?

Overrated
4 July 2011 | by hrdi2See all my reviews

This is a pseudo intellectual mess of that is way too pleased with its own perceived cleverness. Elodie Bouchez, despite her obvious physical beauty, is annoying as a pouty supposedly daring artist. The story is disjointed not because it is trying to make a stylistic point but because of the poor construct of the screenplay and the message it is trying to make is lost in all the pointless dialog and the bad acting. Ironically Zeina Durra makes fun of plays and artwork that are exactly like her own work. If you want proof that the imperialists are still alive just read the news and save the 91 minutes needed to watch this rambling film for something more fruitful, like watching paint dry.
