The Other Son
France, 2012 Narrative, 105 minutes French, Hebrew, Arabic, English with English Subtitles
THE OTHER SON is the moving and provocative tale filmed in Israel and the West Bank - of two young men one Israeli, the other Palestinian, who discover they were accidentally switched at birth, and the complex repercussions on themselves and their respective families. Joseph, an 18-year-old preparing to join the Israeli army for his mandatory military service, lives at home in Tel Aviv with his parents. A blood test for Joseph's military service reveals that he's not their biological son. During the Gulf War, Joseph was evacuated from a clinic along with another baby, and the pair was accidentally switched. While Palestinian Joseph went to Tel Aviv with the Silbergs, their actual Jewish son Yacine was brought to the West Bank by an Arab couple, Said and Leila. The lives of both families are shattered by this revelation and they are forced to reconsider their identities, values and beliefs. A must-see.
