Dont let this movie be forgotten
20 July 2002 | by (cananda) – See all my reviews

This is the Israeli film ever made it a masterpiece it deals with the Arab conflict and two British men and how they fight Palestine a powerful anti-war statement and how the old lead and the young die in it. They should put this movie on dvd but sadly this was forgotten, if you can see this movie go for the actors who are not famous but who cares this movie is a landmark i like its pro-Israel message see this great movie
