Closed: Win Natalie Portman's Free Zone on DVD
Free Zone is the first Israeli film which has been filmed in an Arab country and stars the Israeli born but Hollywood living Natalie Portman in the Amos Gitai directed film which follows three women on a journey from Israel to Jordan.
I have three copies of Free Zone to literally give away, well you have to answer a very simple question, but apart from that you can win it easily, right here on Filmstalker.
The story for Free Zone goes like this, from the official blurb:
"In a bid to escape the painful memories of the break-up, Rebecca joins Hanna (Hanna Lazlo) a middle aged Israeli woman who is determined to collect a large debt owed to her injured husband by his business partner, known as 'The American'. The journey takes them on an arduous drive from Jerusalem to the titular Free Zone - a tax-free region where those from countries at war trade cars with one another. Arriving at their destination the mystery businessman is nowhere to be found but they encounter Leila (Hiam Abbass) a Palestinian woman, who claims to know the whereabouts of the elusive debtor."
The film stars Natalie Portman, Hana Laszlo most recently appearing in Adam Resurrected and Hiam Abbass from the excellent The Visitor (Filmstalker review), as the three women who meet during the journey and the recognisable Makram Khoury as the man they are searching for.
In 2005 it was nominated for an Israeli Film Academy Award and the Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival where it won Hana Laszlo the award for Best Actress.
Unfortunately I've not had the pleasure of seeing Free Zone myself, but you can, and for free, it's simple to win one of the three copies in time for Xmas, here's how.
