  1. Provides an intelligent, deeply personal view of social and political issues that are longstanding and complex but not, she insists, intractable.
  2. The movie's disparate voices coalesce here as an emotionally charged microcosm of the conflict.
  3. 75
    Gripping and thoughtful.

    Sometimes first-person to a borderline-indulgent fault, docu still offers potent spur for discussion on the blurry line between forgiveness and tolerance toward terrorism.
  5. 70
    Her (Gerstel's) apparent marginalization in Israeli society renders this political psychodrama all the more depressing.
  6. 70
    This modest film delivers a simple but powerful message:... the real work of creating a lasting peace must be done on an personal level, one individual at a time.
  7. Gerstel's efforts are a testament to her own humanity and a ray of inspiration for some ultimate peace. But it also speaks to the near futility of individual forgiveness in a continuing tinderbox of hatred.
