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>

GOOD BENCHMARK
5 February 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is a good benchmark to judge other movies: it was ALMOST good and ALMOST poor as it loses the viewer and then ALMOST recovers its mistakes. Relying on subtitles often made the story difficult to understand as they quickly flashed and disappeared. Hence, the visual was more important than interpreting the dialogue. The script's development of ambience and culture and human conflicts are either too skimpy or awkwardly placed in the flow of things. I am of the opinion that only Spanish films compete with the film subtitle speed.

Not having visited Israel, I was as interested in the captured geography and visuals as I was the story. So, I was too often left outside of the vision of the writer. Having said that, it was a ALMOST an average picture that was not that convincing in its telling and managed to get to the ending credits.
