It's a courageous film that is actually very low-key in its approach.
8 May 2007 | by lang-21See all my reviews

I knew immediately from the above user comment (see comment by plypress) that this is probably an interesting film — when the fanatics start frothing at the mouth, you know you have to see the film for yourself! Now I've seen it, and I think "Zero Degrees of Separation" is a fascinating glimpse into the bizarre society that is Israel. It's a courageous film that is actually very low-key in its approach. For example, the image of Flanders' wealthy British grandmother on a visit to Israel in 1950 (as a prelude to immigrating), standing in the desert in her leopard-skin coat and movie-star sunglasses, is surreal, in its way. Flanders knows that there is no need for commentary at moments like these. There are plenty of facts and figures in the film to support the filmmaker's contention that the creation of the State of Israel has been massively problematic on many levels, but with her humane and sympathetic eye, she strikes a delicate balance between fairly evoking the Zionists' dream and showing some of the harsh realities of the present in Israel — realities which create misery and frustration for Palestinians and Israelis alike.
