  1. The Divine Intervention of the title lies somewhere between hope and fantasy. In a world in which Santa Claus is assaulted in Nazareth, what do you have left?
  2. 80
    Antic, puzzling and disturbing film.
  3. A one-of-a-kind experience, a Molotov cocktail of a seriocomedy.
  4. Divine Intervention is the "Dr. Strangelove" of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, bringing barely acknowledged fears to the surface so they can be understood.
  5. 75
    A mordant and bleak comedy, almost without dialogue, about Palestinians under Israeli occupation.
  6. 70
    Slight film of mostly comic tableaux.
  7. Thereare moving moments in this over-hyped satire by the Israeli-Arab writer-director-actor Elia Suleiman, and it's fascinating to get a picture of daily life in prosperous Palestinian neighborhoods.

In the beginning, there are a few hilarious moments involving cantankerous old men, soccer balls, and broken bottles. Then there's a lot of watching characters sit and stare. There's barely any dialogue in the entire film. Finally, the female lead, who's never spoken, suddenly turns into a superhero and takes part in a bizarre fight sequence where she flies around and kicks the ... out of some soldiers. Maybe the film's not supposed to make any sense, but it's neither interesting nor cathartic enough to impress me as an allegory for war. Expand
