  Synopsis: The Insult is a drama movie. The movie is about a controlled conflagration in Ziad Doueiri’s calculatedly explosive drama The Insult. Conceived as a classic story of how a not-so-simple insult can escalate into a nationwide crisis, the film pits a belligerent Lebanese Christian mechanic with a traumatic past against an older Palestinian Muslim still unable to quietly suffer the ever-present verbal and institutional barbs against his dignity. This time debuting in competition at the Venice film festival before heading to Telluride and Toronto, where his terrorism-themed “The Attack” premiered five years earlier, Doueiri sets out the issues in an easily understood, rather too obvious manner, shifting into the courtroom where the proceedings resemble one of those “Law & Order” episodes that deal with a “sensitive” topic such as abortion.
