Description Antoine Besson, Miriam's divorced husband, is a nice man. In charge of security in a hospital, he is esteemed both by his superiors and his fellow colleagues. Moreover he is a good father who, willing to be closer to his eleven-year-old son Julien, has chosen to be transferred to the town where the boy lives with his mother and his older sister Joséphine, soon to be of age. That is the very reason why Antoine, the caring father, is asking for joint custody of Julien. Well, all that would be fine provided Antoine actually was the man he claims to be. The trouble is that his wife and his two children see him in a very different light. For in the past, Antoine was far from an angel. On the contrary, he had a knack for creating an atmosphere of permanent fear at home, going as far as to occasionally beat his wife under his children's eyes. And he got away with it all the more easily as Miriam, wishing to avoid even more problems, never lodged a complaint against him - a fact that eventually turns against her. Which is why, despite the fact that Julien does not want to see his father any more, the family court judge complies with Antoine's request.

This is a great film for a reason, but it is not an anti-war film. It is a film of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and it is all too true to the Middle East situation. I must say I find myself in agreement with the Director's comments that this film was most likely a hard hitting response to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. The only thing that the director could have done to add or change that, is have the two main characters speak French. It would have made it more interesting and it would have further drawn the viewer into their world and into their lives. I also agree with the Director that the Israeli government should have been informed of the film, but that does not mean they would have listened. The film is about the struggle between the Palestinian and Israeli cultures and there is a lot more to it than just the violence. I did not find the characterizations of the Israeli and Palestinian officials to be that interesting. They were portrayed as moronic and so over the top. I do not understand why the movie was called 'Le jour du part.' That is not a story about what happened during the Six Day War, it is a story about the struggle between the Palestinians and the Israelis and the influence of the American government in helping to get the Palestinians what they wanted. The only part that is compelling to me is the last scene, when the two main characters walk out of the theater and the camera focuses on them as they walk through the street. That scene is riveting and I know I will remember it for a long time.
