2017 / DRAMA
A dispute caused by an irrelevant accident brings Toni and Yasser to court. The private discussion between the two turns into a huge conflict, gradually becoming a national case, like a settling dispute between different cultures and religions with unexpected twists and turns. Toni, in fact, is a Christian Lebanese and Yasser a Palestinian.
During the trial, in addition to lawyers and family members, there are two opposing Lebanese groups that rediscover unhealthy wounds and shocking revelations, thus resurfacing a past always there.
The insult won the Coppa Volpi for Best Male Performance at 2017 Venice Film Festival and it was the Lebanese nominee for the 2018 Academy Awards.
