I wouldn't be surprised to learn that this movie wasn't shown on Israeli TV for over 10 years at least, and it's really just plain too bad.
The acting is good yet sometimes a bit theatrical, due to the fact that most actors back then arrived from the theaters and had little experience about how to act in front of a camera.
The scenes were filmed at the same order as the script which was quite unique back then and is quite unique even in those days.
Oded Teomi & Ninet Dinar (no relation to director Baruch Dinar) act well. the late Yossef "Bomba" Zur & Nissim Azikri act in the same manner they have acted on almost every Israeli movie they were in: Zur being the comedian & Azikri being the slightly depressed.
The tension in the scene showing the Arabs riding towards the settlement would put even Hitchcock to shame.
This movie should really be on DVD, and subtitles would be appreciated, since it includes Hebrew/Arabic/Turkish/French.
All in all, very recommended.
