And on the Third Day (2010)

VeBaYom HaShlishi (original title)
This film describes Israel as a country already far beyond identity crises in which anarchy is everywhere, violence is the norm and life is ruled by the world view of "the stupid, the evil and the corrupt".

This is a movie about people caught up in the moment just before a large or small change is about to take place in their lives. A combination of chance and fate delude the protagonists throughout. The movie attempts to describe the life of individuals in contemporary Israeli society, and the almost impossible attempt to simply live one's life. Whether he is a regular citizen or an important "boss", the life of every Israeli is consciously or unconsciously shaped by the national state of affairs. This "state of affairs" filters into his life and into his very being, at times in a destructive and irrevocable manner. Most often, the individual remains unaware of the influence that the big picture - the country suffering tremendous pressures from both inside and outside - has on his personal state of being. This influence resembles a cloud hovering over us while we scurry about on the ground below - like aimless ants who have lost their hill. The movie represents Israel as a country ...

Interesting Movie
10 October 2010 | by winstonsmith_84See all my reviews

I have to say I enjoyed this rather unconventional movie, even if it took a while to get going. It features many people living in Israel and how their lives intertwine with one another. They are all going through harsh times, almost as if experiencing a living hell. It depicts a country where people are corrupt, society is breaking down, and even good people end up doing terrible things... things which their enemies have been doing. It's as if the film portrays Israel as a society suffering and rotting from the inside, but also affected negatively by external politics. Several scenes whisk by crying people. Looks of pain on people's faces. Strange selfish behavior is carried out by many characters in the film...

The 'hellish' existence becomes even more apparent during the film's ending, which I must say served for an excellent climax. It's interesting how the film starts with such a happy, festive scene, which really contrasts with the ending with a society on edge, and then finally, a giant breakdown.

So.. I would recommend this movie. If you get through the first 30 minutes, the rest of the movie is quite enjoyable.

Anyhow. Here's the breakdown:

Acting: 10/10 Story: 7/10 Direction: 8/10 Technical aspects such as light & sound: 9/10
