Le cerf-volant / The Kite (2003) DVD9
The plot of The Kite could easily have taken place in the wake of any military conflict all over the world, but it is actually based on happenings in a small Syrian village up in the Golan Heights in the aftermath of the 1967 war with the Israelis. Land and villages are ravaged by military abuse and all kinds of suppression. Families are divided, finding themselves on different sides of an enforced border, closely guarded by military forces. Only women to be married and dead people are allowed to cross the border to be united with their loved ones.
Relatives stand at each side of the large buffer zone with megaphones, shouting personal information at one another.
Amongst their news, personal jokes, joyous exclamations and overlapping screeches, the women discuss the impending marriage of Lamia (Flavia Bechara), a head-strong 15-year-old girl who has been promised to her older cousin on the Israeli side of the border. She doesn't want to go, but no one ever really asks her how she feels about it. The town elders decide that she is to marry, so soon enough she has a ceremony before crossing the boarder in her wedding gown...
