‘1:1’ takes the inner-city high rise as societal microcosm by following the bigotry and violence that stem from an incident in which a white youth is beaten up and put into a coma. Shadi is from a Palestinian family and is secretly dating Mie, the sister of the aforementioned victim, while his bullying brother Tareq throws his weight around and uses his brawn to snub social responsibility. It’s not long before eyebrows are being raised and fingers are being pointed, but that’s really as far as it gets, with tensions never boiling over and the film ambling along without going anywhere particularly interesting.
