Divine Intervention ★★

From my TIFF 2002 reviews:

First for today was DIVINE INTERVENTION, a very odd Palestinian comedy that unfolds with next to no dialogue, and no plot. It's one of those "things happen" movies, where we watch daily occurances in corners of Nazareth, Ramallah, and Jerusalem. It is often funny, but understanding many of the film's points requires more detailed knowledge than I have of the political culture and the obstacles to "normal" life that Palestinians face. Chalk it up to an experience you can only have at the festival.
