A deadly bomber attack might seem like an unlikely starting point for a lighthearted comedy, but “Maktub” — a charming and intelligent film — becomes a very funny gangster farce.
Steve and Chuma, two criminals, are the sole survivors of a terrorist attack at a restaurant in Jerusalem. They decide to change their ways and become flesh and blood angels. They go on a journey of wish fulfillment for people who write requests on paper and put them between the sacred stones of the Kotel.
The word maktub in Arabic means fate or destiny.
