Unique, insightful film
10 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie addresses a theme rarely portrayed - the frail and painful early post WWII era (it was not yet known as the Holocaust / Shoah) that coincided with the birth of the State of Israel - simple, poor, and just finding its' way. It is largely taken for granted how the survivors, as well as the newest citizens of Israel had to adapt and persevere. This movie, with its' depiction of life in the early years of the state, does a wonderful job of capturing this. This true story is ably conveyed by the fine acting performances. The filming, with dusty roads, vintage cars and clothing, is excellent. This movie is not for everyone, but if you have any interest at all in this topic and / or era - it is a must see.
