Covering the years from 1948 to the present day, writer/director Elia Suleiman's THE TIME THAT REMAINS is a humorous, heartbreaking film that explores life among the Israeli Arab community, shot largely in homes and places in which Suleiman's family once lived. Inspired by his father's diaries, letters his mother sent to family members who had fled the Israeli occupation, and the director's own recollections, the film recounts the saga of the filmmaker's family in subtly hilarious vignettes.

Absolutely Amazing by jmwagner66 October 22, 2012 - 9:55 AM PDT
This movie is so beautifully shot that you forget the horrors sometimes depicted on screen. It's also surprisingly funny given that it is set in post-occupation Palestine from the perspective of an Arab family. The politics are there as a part of life. So is the humor, the foul mouthed neighbor, the absurdity of living under occupation.
