The Insult

In today’s Beirut, an insult blown out of proportions finds Toni, a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser, a Palestinian refugee, in court. From secret wounds to traumatic revelations, the media circus surrounding the case puts Lebanon through a social explosion, forcing Toni and Yasser to reconsider their lives and prejudices.

Director Ziad Doueiri masterfully takes this private clash of wills as a starting point to explore historic rifts between Lebanese communities, and the aftermath of the civil war. Using both humour and pathos, The Insult is ultimately a plea for empathy, forgiveness and peace.
