Galoot

The title of this earnest, meandering home video is the Hebrew word for exile, but the English meaning works pretty well too. An Israeli living in London, filmmaker Asher de Bentolila Tlalim pities the Palestinians, never stops saying so, and apparently never shuts off his camera either; his unedited conversations with his children, wife, and sundry expatriates (Israeli and Palestinian) reflect good intentions but little more. At his most fatuous he asks a molecular biologist whether cell science might yield the secret of peaceful coexistence, given that politics have failed. The answer: no. In English and subtitled Hebrew and Arabic. 100 min.
