A brilliant new tongue-in-cheek comedy that attempts to settle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict via a football match. They have tried it all: wars and peace processes, terror attacks and closures, road checks and Intifadas. After long decades of futile attempts to settle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, there is only one solution left. Based on a successful Israeli novel of the same name, The 90-Minute War ā€“ directed by veteran Israeli director Eyal Halfon and starring Moshe Ivgy ā€“ offers a thought-provoking take on the conflict, and an ingenious plan for a resolution.
