    A formidably engaging queer output from Israel, my second entry into this particular scenario after Haim Tabakman’s EYES WIDE OPEN (2009,A formidably engaging queer output from Israel, my second entry into this particular scenario after Haim Tabakman’s EYES WIDE OPEN (2009, 6/10). OUT IN THE DARK is director Michael Mayer’s debut feature, and he co-writes the script of an arresting drama wrestles with coming-out, domestic conflict, political witch-hunt, social discrimination against homosexuality with appalling atrocity. It touches on many thorny and grim issues of the facts-of-life in the middle east (perceptively chooses Palestine and Israel, the two adjacent foes, for their utter incompatibility in politics and religions, whereas love can conquer these all), tellingly and touchingly eulogises an ode to the true love’s indestructible strength albeit a gloomy future is probably anticipating for the star-crossed lovers Nimr (Jacob), a Palestinian student and Roy (Aloni), a young lawyer from Israel.

    Yes a different romance, but is just love, there aren't amazing moments in this film, maybe isn't the perfect gay movie but is a good one............
