A great film about the IDF!
18 April 2003 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the cinema in Israel just after it's release in 1994. I have an avid interest in the military in general and in the IDF in particular (later doing basic training there). As such this film was fascinating! It was about 5 hours long but seemed shorter. One of the things that I enjoyed about this film was it showed the soldiers as real people, as opposed to the faceless group you always see on the news, normally at a great distance. They talked to famous commanders like General Israel Tal, who were offering a wealth of information on the history and mission of this great organisation. Definitely recommended viewing. I have looked for this film on video/DVD for some years now without success.
