A Racist history Ultering movie
15 May 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I was very disappointed while seeing this film, it contains awful historical mistakes, it alters the reality, it is completely different from the facts of war we have lived, its only purpose is to embellish the israeli invasion of LEBANON. The film settings resemble in no way the LEBANESE geography, and the script doesn't fit the LEBANESE local dialects. This films drops off the initial problem which is that the israelis are the ones who took the homes of the Palestinian and sent them to LEBANON and it focuses only on the militia financed by the israeli government. I watched this film, I consider it wasted 2 hours of my time, and I don't recommend it for viewers with scarce knowledge of the middle east problem and I consider it a racist movie classifying the Palestinian as a second class human who have no right to claim back their homes stolen by the israelis.
