Go With Peace Jamil | Chicago Reader

Go With Peace Jamil

Set in Copenhagen's Arab immigrant community, this Dogma 95 drama recounts an endless cycle of brutal revenge between two families, one Sunni and the other Shiite. Members of each family disparage the other's religious origins, yet first-time director Omar Shargawi never aims for a political tract. As the acts of violence escalate with numbing frequency, the overwhelmed protagonist tries to balance his desire to tolerate his enemies against his duty to avenge his family members, a seemingly unresolvable dilemma that lends the film much of its raw power. In Arabic and Danish with subtitles. 90 min.
