In director Zaid Doueiri's Lebanese-French production, a successful Arab-Israeli doctor faces the challenge of a lifetime, when a woman suicide bomber blows herself in a restaurant, killing several people, including young children.
As the doctor gets drawn into investigating the motives of the bomber, he has to come to terms with his own identity. He is an Arab, but not welcomed in Palestinian territories. And although he lives in Israel, he will never have the full privileges of that society since he is not Jewish.
A profoundly moving film, The Attack - much like the 2005 film Paradise Now -- gives a rare human face to the seemingly unending Arab-Israeli conflict.
