It Must Be Heaven

It Must Be Heaven

In a series of darkly comic vignettes shot in international locales, Palestinian director Elia Suleiman investigates the meanings of being in exile, and the absurdities of nationalism, normality, and identity.


Critical Notes

"Palestinian filmmaker Elia Suleiman's welcome return after a long absence takes him to Paris and New York, finding drollery much like at home." - Peter Howell, Toronto Star
