One side of the story.
28 June 2004 | by (Holon, Israel) – See all my reviews

The facts: after a wave of Palestinian attacks on Israeli civilians, in April 2002 the Israeli army initiated Operation Homat Magen ("Shield Wall"). As part of that operation, Israeli forces entered the Palestinian city of Jenin. In the firefights that ensued, Israelis and Palestinians were killed.

From here opinions differ. Shortly after the incursion, Palestinians started spreading claims of a widespread massacre committed by Israeli troops, in which hundreds of Palestinians were killed. Israel of course denied these allegations, claiming that less than 50 Palestinians were killed (as well as some 20 Israeli troops), most of which were militants that were threatening the soldiers. Eventually, UN Envoy Terje Larsen visited the Jenin Refugee Camp, the center of the so-called atrocities, and determined that the rumours of a massacre were exaggerated.

So we have two sides of the story. "Jenin, Jenin" goes to great lengths to show only one of them. Mohammed Bakri collected evidence from local residents which support the claim of a massacre. Those testimonies present a seemingly convincing case. But as a documentary, rather than a propaganda movie, "Jenin, Jenin" has failed its purpose. I'm not the one to claim if what is presented in the movie is true or not, but taking it for granted that what you see is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth is mistaken at best.
