★★★★ "A gem of a movie" - Stuff

Filmmaker Elia Suleiman escapes from Palestine seeking an alternative homeland, only to find that Palestine is trailing behind him. The promise of a new life turns into a comedy of errors: however far he travels, from Paris to New York, something always reminds him of home.

From award-winning director Elia Suleiman, a comic saga exploring identity, nationality and belonging, in which Suleiman asks the fundamental question: where is the place we can truly call home?

Winner - Special Mention & FIPRESCI Prize - Cannes Film Festival 2019

★★★★ - Dominion Post
"Elia Suleiman's latest film is endlessly thoughtful, self-aware, reflective and achingly human."

★★★★ - The Australian
"Suleiman's whimsical brand of observational comedy has been compared to that of the French master, Jacques Tati"

★★★★ - One Room With a View
"A small, understated gem."

"Whimsical and wistful yet infused with a yearning for the stability of place..." - Variety

"...a hilarious, absurdist take on what it means to be a Palestinian." - Cineuropa
