Synopsis

A look back at that old Friday afternoon ritual, when Israeli families of all backgrounds would watch the Arab movie of the week. Arabic Movie takes us back to that fleeting moment when Israelis shared the same cultural heroes as everyone else in the Middle East, even as it raises disturbing questions about the relationship of Israelis with their neighbors across the border.
