Storyline

In a rough style, by way of unique footage, the brutal consequences of modern wars are exposed. The film also depicts the ability of women and children to handle their everyday life after a dramatic war experience. Many of them live in tents or in ruins without walls or roofs. They are all in need of money, food, water and electricity. Others have lost family members, or are left with seriously injured children. Can war solve conflicts or create peace? The film follows three children through the war and the period after the ceasefire. Written by Anonymous

Tears of Gaza = 90 minutes of slaughter
18 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

You can compare Tears of Gaza with Passion of the Jew by Mel Gibson in South Park. It is only 90 minutes of people getting slaughtered. I understand that the world should see how horrible Palestine got it, but is it really necessary to show it for 90 minutes? This film does nothing but show one perspective of the conflict, that is OK, but we do not get any briefing on why they are being bombed, we don't even see who the bombers are nor hear anything from them at all. I believe that the film would express more sympathy for Palestine if they i confronted Israel with the photos the got; how can this sort of action be defended?

During the film we get three stories from three different children. Yet we also get stories from others during the film, I believe they try to create more sympathy when they hear stories from children. This does not work for me, the stories are also mixed with others and the storyline in this film is... well... a pathetic attempt to get sympathy.

I agree that the world should see how they have to live day by day, but this is not the way.
