Omar is one of 2013’s best foreign films. It’s about a cell in Israel fighting for Palestinian freedom. After an Israeli soldier is gunned down, Omar is captured, accidentally confesses and to gain his freedom, agrees to spy for Israel and deliver his group to the authorities.
This is an intense, brilliantly written and told tale with exceptional acting and plenty of twists and turns. Don’t miss this one.
