A must see movie
30 October 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Toronto Film Festival. During the film, there was almost no sound from the audience--no whispering, coughing, rustling. Almost complete silence. The audience was completely caught up in the movie. It looked at the aftermath of one bombing of a bus in Jerusalem and interviewed the family of the victims, other bus drivers, investigating police, those near the scene of the bus bombing and medical people at the treating hospital. The people interviewed left a lasting impression of the horror of the bombing on all those who came into contact with it or the loved ones who died. Yet the film greatly underplayed the emotions.
