Storyline

A few Palestinian guerilla's break into an Israeli camp in the occupied territories. They kill a few Israeli soldiers before they are killed, apart from one who dies in the camp after being captured alive. The Israeli military despatch an investigator to the camp to see if there was cold blooded murder (people at the camp had claimed he was shot while trying to escape). It turns out that the investigator despatched is a friend of the camp commander - the rest of the plot is basically about the position of both of these characters as regards being honest or faithful to ones friends. There is unbearable tension, increased by the fact that they are both very strongly attracted to one of the female soldiers on the camp. Written by <dbrewste@mcs.dundee.ac.uk>

The tension is better than the resolution
28 February 2014 | by NozzSee all my reviews

This movie is about a conflict between friends who previously went through long, grueling military training together. Evidently for the sake of improving the audience's understanding and empathy, it takes us through quite a lengthy depiction of that training. And evidently because it suspects that the training itself may not give the film a lot of momentum, the whole thing starts with a flash-forward into the movie to show us who will be confronting whom later on. When the confrontation comes about-- and it's the irresistible force of a dedicated criminal investigator meeting the immovable object of the investigator's personal bond with a suspect-- it is played for all it's worth and the long wait is justified. Of course the premise is a bit unlikely. What are the odds that as a military policeman you'll have to investigate your own friend from your training days? But Israel is a small country, and Israelis of only a narrow age range are in the army at the same time, so while unlikely it's less unlikely than elsewhere. And of course the investigator should recuse himself, but the movie supplies him with a reason not to. Like the scenes of training, the scenes of interpersonal tension go on and on, but unfortunately the payoff is rather understated instead of cathartic.
