From the outset of this emotional powerhouse, the sexual attraction between Sarah, a Jewish married woman, and Saleem, a Muslim married man, is palpably visible. Meeting in Saleem’s cramped delivery van in a Jerusalem parking lot, their trysts seems less like love making and more like physical exercises meant to erase life’s disappointments— hers being married to a stodgy army officer, and his working at a low-paying job. But soon one lie after another shakes up their relationship and the lives around them. Stellar performances!
