Movie Haiku:Professionally successful & fully accepted by his Israeli friends, a prominent Palestinian surgeon (Suliman) is shocked when his wife (Amsalem) chooses terrorism instead & dies as a suicide bomber. Once again director Doueiri & screenwriter Joelle Touma undermine an excellent actor by failing to give his partner a 3D role.
