Before passing away, U.S.-based widower Surjit Singh informs his doctor son, Varyam, that he has a step-mother, Santoh, who lives in Punjab along with a daughter, Rani, who he did not provide for nor communicate, and that he was compelled to marry his U.S.-citizen mother as he was in the county illegally. He instructs him to take his ashes there and let Santoh immerse them. Surjit subsequently passes away, and Varyam travels to Punjab to fulfill his father's last wish. Upon arrival, he will soon start learning Punjabi from gorgeous Preet; running the village dispensary, as well as meet Santoh and Rani without informing them of his identity and intent. His intentions to make amends with them will be misunderstood as he will be expected to get married to Rani; while the local Police will be compelled to re-investigate the mysterious disappearance of a male named Kirpal.

Jamie N (es) wrote: Winner of the Golden Lion award at the 2009 Venice Film Festival; 'Lebanon' was met with extraordinary reviews from critics and jury members alike. For a simple story, one set almost entirely inside a tank, 'Lebanon' is one built around superb performances from the four crew members, centred deep within the Israeli war. It's incredibly rare these days to find a film that focuses mainly on character development. However, when it's done right, as it is in 'Lebanon', it can make a film much more effect and profound. Samuel Maoz clearly knows his information, managing to, somewhat forcefully, express what being on the front line is like for anyone deep in the heart of a war. It's a story that challenges all cinematic rules that have been put in place, forcing the viewers to engage with these four central leads, however uncomfortable that may be. It takes you as far into war as you'd want to be, making you feel everything the characters are feeling, coming away when the film eventually draws to a close. 'Lebanon' was certainly an arrestingly tense affair, but one done with beauty, it's hard not to engage with. The visuals are spot-on, making it feel authentic in it's portrayal of a gritty, intense world some of us are completely oblivious to. It's truly magnificent to be able to make a film like this one, one that challenges, and forces the viewers to battle with their emotions in order to find the heart within the picture. Astonishing. 'Lebanon' was a visually overpowering and arrestingly tense piece of cinematic flare. Samuel Maoz bestows a fascinating focus on narrative and character development. Intensely beautiful.

Sean C (jp) wrote: You have to applaud the fact that all the performances in the movie are delivered by non-professionals, although I had an especially difficult time following this movie at times. The linguistic difference between Hebrew and Arabic is important for distinguishing who is talking or where the scene is taking place, for example, and I have a woeful ear for the two. The story is very moving, though, even while the non-linear, multi-arc crossroads of the characters is feeling more and more tiresome in this genre at this point, years removed from "Crash". Why can't cultural crime dramas be told in a logical structure anymore? Not every movie has to be "City of God". However, "Ajami" is a wonderful cultural film and one scene, in particular, that involved a bedouin tribunal will be on my mind for some time. This film excels at humanizing a part of the world that the rest of us fear and misunderstand, while also pointing out how cemented some aspects of its violent undercurrent are in their society.

Joe C (jp) wrote: Frank Capra, Clark Gable, and Claudette Colbert... what else do you need? Nothing, according to the Academy Awards in 1934. Proving that once in a blue moon they get it right, the Academy awarded this whip-smart screwball comedy all five of the year's major Oscars. To modern viewers, the plot framework of It Happened One Night, which tosses together cynical reporter Clark Gable and snappy heiress Claudette Colbert on the run from her cosseted life, might seem like pretty boilerplate stuff, but you don't need a high concept when you're dealing with wit this sharp. And if its ingredients look familiar now, it's because It Happened One Night has been imitated so often. So beguiling is the story and so charming are the performances, it has the power to make romantics of the most hardened of hearts. Resistance is futile.

EQ R (it) wrote: This film is a case where the performances carry the film. Norton being the stand out with a character he vaguely played before, this film suffers from a weak script with too many metaphors that unsuccessfully try to drive home it's religious meaning throughout. I cautiously recommend this film for the performances, plus it's good to see De Niro and Norton in their first film together since "The Score", too bad this film wasn't nearly as good as the latter.
