Laurence Green reviews Eran Riklis’s Lemon Tree .
A small film with a big impact, Eran Riklis’s Lemon Tree puts a human face on the Israeli/Palestine standoff.
Based on a true story, the film turns a simple snapshot of a minor political situation into a touching and memorable analogy for a country divided.
A Palestinian widow finds her beloved lemon grove threatened when an Israeli government minister moves in next door and with the help of a determined lawyer, takes her case to the high court.
Expertly handled by director Riklis, this is a pertinent and well acted drama with a standout performance by Palestinian actess Hiam Abass - The Visitor - in the central role in which the personal meets the political.
