The Best Israeli film!
Atalya Nir | Ramat-Gan, Israel | 10/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is truly the best Israeli film there ever was (and probably ever will be...). It follows a gang of Arab terrorists in Lebanon, 1982, who capture an Israeli slodier. It doesn't take long for the Arab group and the Jewish Soldier to find that they're really not that different from one another: They're all people, they're all getting pretty sick of the war, they're all abslutely sure they're right, and they all like the same socker team. It is a beautiful film! Moshe Ivgi is very good as Cohen, the Israeli soldier, but the one who really steals the show is the brilliant Muhamad Bakri as Ziad, the leader of the captures. the dinamic between the two of them is amazing! Once you've watched the film , you will surly look at things differently!"
