Meanwhile, the killing continues while both sides weep as they bury their dead. FAUDA (which means chaos in Arabic) is a searing story of how these lives interact and the suffering endured, especially by the many innocent bystanders.

Taut and suspenseful. FAUDA is also a family drama, in a way that America thrillers can’t really duplicate.  The opposing sides live in such close quarters, and with so much shared history, that wives, children, cousins, and girlfriends get caught up in danger in believable ways, without the manufactured plot twists American dramas employ to put family members in jeopardy.

The New York Times

It’s a doozy of a political action thriller, a grabber from the get-go, and wildly compelling. There is a hushed, intelligent quality to it and an acrid sense of pessimism. Lies are easily told, male rage triumphs over pragmatism and, in the end, there is always someone dead in a dreary room while, somewhere else, somebody is weeping quietly.
