Confession of "killing of an Arab"
26 October 2009 | by gaujaimSee all my reviews

The film is based on an Israeli soldier's confession to his girlfriend about killing of two Palestinian policeman in an act of revenge. The form and content of the film derives from an ancient Greek tragedy, using the elements of musical inserts, like of an ancient chorus, judging the main protagonist. What I found fresh and unusual in this film is how it manages to polarize masculine and feminine views in such a simple and honest manner by letting them interview each other. Somehow, through this, it achieves a very high level of sincerity and brings out the simple truth of men being born as warriors and women as saviors. All the protagonist's actions are consciously recognized and analyzed from distance but instinct driven in the moment of happening. By concentrating on the detailed way of reconstructing and describing the act of killing, the film suddenly gets a much wider view and becomes an easy-handed comment on the darkest side of human nature, reminding me of Lars Von Trier's „Anticrist".
