Storyline

In this disturbing, realistic debut a determined young female soldier interrogates an officer. Contrary to her colleagues' advice she accuses him of beating up an Arab family. She perseveres against the abuse of power in the army. A female Israeli soldier is ordered to interrogate an Israeli officer who is alleged to have abused an Arab family. Lower in rank and also a woman, she is barely taken seriously by the haughty man; he only gives her sarcastic answers. Her colleagues, including her lover, advise her to stop the case - because it is too political, too complex and too notorious. Instead, she fastens her teeth in it, in the hope of getting justice for the victims. In the meantime she has the thumbscrews tightened by her lover and his intended. All the interrogations take place in room 514, where the sound palette is formed only by voices and the air conditioning. Room 514 is a courageous, hyper-realistic, low-budget drama that provides a worrying and critical picture of Israeli ... Written by Rotterdam Internationam Film Festival

Sharon Bar Ziv's first feature film is excellent
7 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I screened Bar Ziv's film at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, and it is excellent!

The female lead, Anna, is played by Asia Naifeld, and her performance is amazing. She plays opposite Guy Kapulnik, who is also great. Anna conducts the investigation in a 3x3 metre room, where she interrogates those accused of abuse while contending with personal calls from her ageing mother (hilarious).

Anna is under pressure from her superiors to close the investigation and exonerate the soldiers, but she is relentless. The camera work is masterful, using long fixed shots which capture every emotion. The room is a microcosm of contemporary Israeli society. The ending - dramatic and unexpected - is open to debate.
