Beirut, present day. After a seemingly mundane disagreement, Toni, a hot-headed Lebanese Christian mechanic, and Yasser, a laconic Palestinian building foreman, exchange incendiary words — including "Zionist dog" — that explode into an argument, followed by a legal showdown that finally escalates into a full-blown national crisis. A tense political drama with the energy and verve of a crackling thriller, "The Insult" (from the director of the acclaimed "The Attack") is an up-to-the-second relevant dispatch on the volatility of the modern Middle East — and the male ego. A Cohen Media Group release. In Arabic with English subtitles.
