Storyline

Ever since 17-year-old Rachel Levy, an Israeli, was killed four years ago in Jerusalem by a Palestinian suicide bomber, her mother Abigail has found hardly a moment's peace. Levy's killer was Ayat al-Akhras, also 17, a schoolgirl from a Palestinian refugee camp several miles away. The two young women looked unbelievably alike. TO DIE IN JERUSALEM unabashedly explores the Palestinian-Israeli conflict through the personal loss of two families. The film's most revealing moment is in an emotionally charged meeting between the mothers of the girls, presenting the most current reflection of the conflict as seen thru their eyes.

Fascinating viewing
17 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a documentary, people! This means that the filmmaker is not to be blamed/credited for the enlightened/unenlightened beliefs/behaviors of the subjects depicted in the film. I praise the director for the creativity, guts and follow-through necessary to produce a film exploring the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the eyes of two mothers--one whose daughter died at the hands of a suicide bomber and the other the mother of the bomber. Bravo! This is the very definition of documentary film-making: something that throws a light on the inner- workings of humanity. Through what, I'm sure, were very trying circumstances, the filmmaker gives both women full range of expression. You may, like myself, find contempt for this party or that, but this movie stays neutral and lets the cards fall where they may. I will keep my opinions of both the Palestinian and Israeli mothers to myself, and simply dare others to seek out this heart-wrenching film at their library, video store or on-line, for some compelling viewing that I guarantee will not leave their consciousness' unscathed.
