The Other Son (Le fils de l'autre)

As he prepares to join the Israeli army for his national service, Joseph discovers he is not his parents' biological son, but that he was inadvertently switched at birth with Yassin, the son of a Palestinian family from the West Bank. This revelation turns the lives of these two families upside-down, forcing them to reassess their respective identities, their values and their beliefs.

October 25, 2012 - Boston.com - By Wesley Morris, Globe Staff

It’s almost too obvious and too inevitable to be real. A nice Franco-Jewish family in Tel Aviv and a less-well-off Arab quintet discover that their sons were dropped into the wrong arms. I know. I can’t believe it, either. It took this many decades for a full-blown, Israeli-Palestinian switched-at-birth drama. Making “The Other Son” must have been like discovering the website URL you assumed was taken is actually free. The movie is shameless and simple yet solemn at the same time.
