Nothing supernatural - still amazingly good
16 January 2020 | by natarajSee all my reviews

In this fourth episode we come back to the main characters from Syria and Israel, but mostly, the action is in Texas. Each one of them stays true to their personality, but somehow - and I cannnot praise the film-making enough here, the way a story is told by pictures, facial expressions, or even by not moving at all - something changes in each one of them.

"Al-Masih" says very little, but always in straight sentences. No mushy sermons, no Hallelujahs. And what he says, it makes a difference. It changes the way people behave. How they think. How they are.

He does not need a miracle.

That is what I like best in this show: the down-to-earth-, matter-of-fact-ness. CIA officers behave like they're supposed to do, Shin Beth agents, too. Politicians, lawyers, even the judge - they do not feel out of character at all.

And still ... events turn out very different from what they were supposed to be. Was it the few words from Al-Masih "... remember: it was fate that put you here", that made a man act so very differently from how he'd acted for 40 years?

Very well done! And fascinating to watch.

10/10
