Storyline

Is today's fanaticism tomorrow's policy? In a West Bank settlement, Rabbi Meltzer has a grand design: he's building a movement "to pray at the Temple Mount." His yeshiva has scholars, and the settlement is getting its own military company to be commanded by Menachem, a disciple of the rabbi. He also wants his daughter, Michal, to marry Pini, the yeshiva's best scholar. Michal has no interest in Pini, but she is attracted to Menachem. When she rebuffs Pini, he hatches a bold and secret plan. Is jealousy the motivation or something else? Meanwhile, the army and Mossad are closely watching the rabbi's activities and Menachem's military training. Who is trustworthy? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Film that Loses Direction
1 October 2004 | by (Seoul, Republic of Korea) – See all my reviews

When watching this film I was very astonished at how much potential could have existed for the plot that was given, yet how badly the actual film was executed. The basic plot seemed very interesting, but for many reasons, the portrayal was a failure. It seemed to have lost direction on a large scale.

None of the characters involved seem real or convincing in their roles, and often there seemed to be a sense of passionless acting that bogged the film down. Also, too much plot was happening all at once so that it was hard to follow the progression of the film. Large, unexplained character shifts and a certain sense of dark, dreary boredom plagued the film.

I found the film to be very lacking, tedious, and something that I would recommend to no one.
