Storyline

Pastiche filmmaking: Gitai reflects on the death of Yitzhak Rabin through a series of interviews with Rabin's widow, visits to an editing room where monitors display the funeral and the reenactment of the murder, car rides through Israel and the occupied territories with the camera simply recording what's out there, performances by rocker Aviv Gefen, poetry read by Efratia Gitai, and reflections on birds, courage, war, and memories of Rabin and his family by a small cast of Gitai's friends and acquaintances. Gitai calls it minimalist filmmaking. It's a movie as graffiti, exploring the biblical verse, "to every time, there is a season." Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

we walked out of this one
1 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie was the worst film we had ever seen in ten years of attending the Toronto film festival. It is also the only film we had ever walked out of. It seemed to be more about the film maker than the subject matter. It was appallingly self-indulgent, and did a great injustice to the memory of Yitzchak Rabin.
