    I think it was the word "comedy" that threw me. The description was interesting enough, but a Jeresalem/Palestine romantic comedy? My instinct is to pass on this one as well.
    Iím haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.

    This movie has a Romeo and Juliet feel to it, but the whole "comedy" word throws that feel out the window. I'm also passing on this one.
