Two Israeli men living the Israeli reality in Germany.
31 March 2005 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Most people think that the Jewish holocaust that occurred in Europe half a century ago ended with the war. Others understand that hideous events like the holocaust was, stays with the person for the rest of his life, hurting him, his abilities to have a normal love life, a normal family, a normal everything. But only a few, outside of Israel or Jewish houses around the world, can realize the effect it has on the generation that came right after it. Metallic Blues is a film about that generation.

As you could have probably guessed by now I liked the movie very much. It is very well done including a great performance by Moshe Ivgy and Avi Kushnir, a wonderful script, photography, and also a tasteful choice of music for the soundtrack. I recommend it very much for Israeli's, but especially for those of you that aren't Israeli. The movie reveals the terrible trauma world war two left with the Jewish people, making the viewer understand how much time it will take before it will go away, if ever. It also maybe gives some sort of explanation for the madness that has been going on for decades in Israel. Like a child with a bad childhood. A sad movie.
