...and I mean that. Take a theme as worn down as the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis and see whether you find a film that deals as eloquently with it as this one. A beautiful female soldier in the Israel army seeks shelter in a cave to have a drink of water and finds herself face to face with a rebel soldier, whom she shoots by accident. Lauded by her superiors for her bravery, she is haunted by guilt and subsequently by the spectre of the soldier she killed. He takes her onto a journey through his past and lets her see how he came to be in that cave. Refraining from giving into temptation to take one side, the director takes you into a conflict and makes you feel it. Photographed in Israel and set to a very delicate film score, this is a magnificent film with a beautiful ending. Highly recommended!
