Rana’s Wedding (2002), Hany Abu-Assad, B

Jordan | Jordan Hoffman's Movie Journal | Sunday, March 27th, 2005

This movie gets extra points just for originality. You can read Thoman Freidman’s columns until you are blue in the face but to actually see the minutae of life in the occupied territory during the Intifada brings about an entirely different reality. The problem with this from a movie-going perspective, of course, is that a little bit of mundane aggrivation goes a long way. This movie is fascinating. But it is also boring. It also doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. It is weighed down with an absurdly thin ticking clock and characters that are a little hard to read. I much would have preferred a dismissal of this roundabout plot and one of those lost-character-wandering-around films like Morvern Callar. Lord knows the setting is interesting enough.

  1. Not sure where you get “Morvern Callar.” Here’s my review, which tries to connect it to “Run Lola Run,” “My BFGW,” and “Ulysses.”

  2. The Morvern Callar connection is fairly surface: a woman unsure of her next step wanders through a (for me) exotic locale.
