Very Dark indeed
25 November 2005 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Not sure how one can rank this film with marks out of 10.

Very depressing, very violent (although there is no violence per se) - just 6 men talking about a massacre they were involved (they were perpetrators) in during the Lebanese war in 1982.

The last man to comment in the film really made my stomach turn - although what he says, in a rather sick way has a ring of truth to it.

If you are looking for gory images, old film footage and lots of blood this is not for you. If you are interested in listening to some fairly strange/sad/almost ordinary at times individuals reminiscing 23 years later on their deeds done in a non remorseful way, then I suggest you give it a try. There is as per typical documentary making, one former thug who seems to understand the difference between good and evil

Makes you think, but try not to think too hard, it will keep you awake all night. Try Robert Fisk's Pity the Nation before you watch as it will give you a good background to the historical events at the time.
