The Insult Film

In today’s Beirut, a civilian dispute blown out of proportion finds Tony (Adel Karam), a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser (Kamel El Basha), a Palestinian refugee, facing off in court. As the media circus surrounding the case threatens a social explosion in divided Lebanon, Tony and Yasser reconsider their values and beliefs as revelations of trauma complicate their understanding of one another.

“Engaged and astute.”  – Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

“The Insult is optimistic enough to leave the door open to hope. But it’s also realistic enough to only leave it ajar.”  – Ty Burr, The Boston Globe

“There is something undeniably exhilarating about the film’s honest assessment of the never-ending conflict between decency and cruelty that rages in every nation, neighborhood and heart.”   – A.O. Scott, New York Times
