Critic Reviews for The Insult (L'insulte)
The Insult provides a valuable, fascinating and hard-hitting history lesson on Middle East politics, particularly the plight of Palestinians. It instructs, but offers no easy answers. [Full review in Japanese]
Any sense of predictability is dispelled by the film's ending which triumphantly unites the political and the personal by crystallising their connection in two great performances.
"The Insult" is optimistic enough to leave the door open to hope. But it's also realistic enough to only leave it ajar.
It shows that even in the most hostile of situations, with all of our prejudices in front of and behind us, we're still in this together.
Audience Reviews for The Insult (L'insulte)
A slowly absorbing courtroom drama that could have been a bit more well polished, especially considering the way it tries to force our sympathy towards the two characters, but I do love how it shows that a personal conflict can reveal so much about something more complex than it seems.
