Cup Final

NarrativeOther | 1991 | 105 min.
Directed by: Eran Riklis

Set during the 1982 invasion of Lebanon, CUP FINAL tells the story of Cohen, a young Israeli soldier who is kidnapped by a group of Palestinian fighters and held hostage during the conflict. The 1982 FIFA World Cup happens to be on during the invasion, and captor and captive's mutual love of football (and support for the Italian team), helps break down the barriers of nationalism and historical baggage.
