Well-made film explores the nature of living with forbidden desire
13 February 2013 | by dark_side_of_the_sunSee all my reviews

This film was very nicely done. Interesting from beginning to end. Well written and acted. Universal themes and interesting characters beautifully presented.

A group of Israeli soldiers are about to be deployed to Lebanon. Before leaving they get a short leave in Jerusalem. We follow our protagonist as he engages with them and finds something in common with a fellow soldier.

If you like well-made short films exploring self-discovery, companionship, secrecy, desire, and love in a less-than-welcoming environment, you'll enjoy this film.
