The Press Reviews

  • Filmmaker and actor Elia Suleiman uses his own face and body to express the soul of Palestine in his films, and nowhere more so than in his droll new comedy, It Must Be Heaven. Full Review

  • For Suleiman, comedy is a kind of rhetorical non-violence. And yet there is also a pessimism here, a warning from a tarot card reader that a Palestinian state will not be seen in the protagonist's lifetime. Full Review
