In his AJW review of The Attack, Michael Fox wrote that “Beirut-born, Paris-based writer-director Ziad Doueiri has crafted a searing adaptation of Algerian author Yasmina Khadra’s novel.”
Fox called the film — which focuses on an Arab Israeli doctor (played by Ali Suliman) whose life is turned upside down when the police inform him that his wife has perpetrated a gruesome terrorist attack in Tel Aviv — an “unflinching story crammed with hard truths.”
The Attack opens Friday, August 23 at the Edina Cinema.
