Storyline

Produced in Israel in English with an international cast, "The Faithful City" depicts some of the courage, patience, bravery and understanding that attended the birth of Israel as a free and independent nation. The larger story is told within the framework of a simple story regarding the rehabilitation of orphaned-children from war-ravaged Europe. Sam, a counselor from a boy's camp in New York state, is at first confident that children are children no matter what their backgrounds. He soon finds the young refugees to be mature, tough, and living by the creed of 'survival at any cost.' One of the children,Max, frustrates Sam by his dishonesty and cockiness. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

User Reviews

Curiosity over taken by history.
30 June 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This now forgotten British-US-Israeli production has the interest of being set at the time of the founding of Israel and does show Palestinian opposition though it's sympathies are clearly with the Jewish war orphans in the care of John Slater and Jamie Smith (star of Kubric's KILLER'S KISS.)

It's rather pious tone avoids making any serious political comment, leaving it in the curious company of the small number of films - MANON, SWORD in THE DESERT which treat this period.

Production values are adequate and the children's plight does register.
