Number of Times Seen – 1 (2 Jun 2021)

Brief Synopsis – In the early 90’s, two Norwegian diplomats hatch a scheme to try and create peace in the Middle East.

My Take on it – Fascinating story that works due to the superb dialogue that is delivered so precisely.

The cats is great and each allow he viewer to really believe that they are watching this historic event take place in front of their eyes,.

The story is able to touch upon many of the essential points of this on-gong conflict, yet still treats things with kid gloves the whole way through.

I liked the fact that certain famous persona are not played by actors, but rather through true archival footage.

The characters are all taking very large risks in all that they do here and we can feel the tension rise among them as things unfold in directions that one might never have expected.

The film wisely uses subtitles to introduce various key figures in the story which helps get a larger understanding to the gravitas of such a story.

The characters engage one another quite well and that adds to the realism the whole time.

The film has a relatively small cast which is filled with mostly unknown actors.

This helps add a much needed realism to this film which allows for things to feel more personal and powerful in all that transpires here.

Recommended!
