Movie Haiku:Young Druze woman (Khoury) living in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights agrees to an arranged marriage with a Syrian TV star. Thereís a lot to like in this Israeli film, especially Abbas''s strong performance as the Brideís pragmatic older sister, but the personal elements & the political elements donít quite gel.
