A film by Muayad Alayan.  In Arabic, Hebrew and English with German subtitles.

[Credits] [Termine] [Trailer]

An affair of the heart beco­mes an affair of sta­te: a Palestinian dra­ma that takes the uphe­avals bet­ween Arabs and Jews to ano­ther, unu­su­al level. Sex in the back of a truck – that just about sums up the affair bet­ween Sarah and Saleem. They meet seve­ral times a week, as soon as he’s finis­hed deli­ve­ring his pastries and she’s shut her café. Their affair is given added piquan­cy not just by the fact that they’­re both mar­ried, but becau­se Sarah is Israeli and Saleem Palestinian. When the pair are spot­ted tog­e­ther, the intel­li­gence ser­vices on both sides take an inte­rest in Saleem, becau­se Sarah’s hus­band is no ordi­na­ry Israeli, but a high-ran­king officer.
