The Insult: You talkin™ to ME?! Ineuropa

Tony is an unrepentant anti-Palestinian bigot, watching hate speeches on his TV in Beirut with the volume at full blast, and eventually launching into a vile racist tirade against Palestinian Yasser, a building inspector, that earns Tony two broken ribs. Their wives urge them to forget the whole thing, but the men refuse, and the crackling courtroom drama between the stubborn Christian and the equally stubborn Muslim becomes a media sensation, blown wildly out of proportion throughout Lebanon. Subtitled.

Directed by Ziad Doueiri
