Storyline

The 1956, a few years after the War of Independence and the establishment of the State of Israel. Immigration is at its peak, transit camps are scattered throughout the country. This is the story of one platoon at Training Base 4, a three-month boot camp boot comprised of conscripts from Ashkenazi Jews, new immigrants from North Africa and Europe, Holocaust survivors, as well as both secular and religious individuals. All the platoon members are physically unfit or mentally disabled. They find themselves on the extreme margins of society, at the bottom of the social ladder, and dream of ascending to the top. Common precepts such as "melting pot," "team spirit," and "one for all and all for one," remain unfulfilled. This is a battle for the individual's survival, a war for status, identity, and independence. A battle to attain the loftiest dreams, a war waged by individuals against their destiny.

Too short at 2 hours - should have been a TV series?
16 December 2010 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

I don't know how long the novel is that they based this movie on, but the movie has too many dramatic things happening too fast to too many extreme characters. The characters are well acted, and the incidents are not wildly unrealistic (only a little), but the way the incidents are crowded together is counterproductive. This story could have been spun out into a good TV series and come across as a more believable picture of life in the training camp for Israeli military recruits who are less than hale and hardy. Given an episode a week, it could have afforded to spend some time showing that most of the days pass in routine and that most of the recruits are not extreme misfits. It could have given a clearer picture of some of the characters and relationships-- when everyone's in uniform, a little extra effort is needed to keep them identifiable as individuals-- and not skimped on the background or the consequences of the dramatic things that happen.
