Lemon Tree” (2008) by directed by the Israeli filmmaker Eran Rilkis is intended as a modern reworking of the Old Testament story of Ahab, the King of Israel, who covets the vineyard of his neighbour, Naboth the Jezreelite. In this case, however, Ahab is Israel’s defence minister. He has moved into a new house adjoining a lemon grove, a middle-aged Palestinian widow’s only source of income, and insists that the trees be cut down for security reasons. She fights back, engaging in a hopeless battle, though unlike Ahab’s wife, Jezebel, the minister’s wife sympathises with the handsome widow (Observer 14.12.08).
