Avenge but one of my two eyes
2 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

The title comes from Samson's famous last prayer asking God to give him the strength one last time to take revenge. In a surprising exercise of symmetry, Avi Mograbi uses Jewish mythology to portray the Palestinian mindset. Against a backdrop of senseless daily persecution, Mograbi shows us lost people, clueless in a situation that nobody seems to make any sense out of. It is a fresh new approach void of the usual bloody violence and hatred, with no commentary or voice-over, where real-life people enact a macabre and surrealist play. It is this kind of documentaries that give me hope because I can see that there are still people in the midst of all this hatred that can still retain enough lucidity to recognize what they see for what it is : a shame. Two peoples with so much in common entangled in a death embrace that will consume them both. Just like the director of the documentary, we want to scream at them " What are you doing ?!"
