Storyline

In a rough style, by way of unique footage, the brutal consequences of modern wars are exposed. The film also depicts the ability of women and children to handle their everyday life after a dramatic war experience. Many of them live in tents or in ruins without walls or roofs. They are all in need of money, food, water and electricity. Others have lost family members, or are left with seriously injured children. Can war solve conflicts or create peace? The film follows three children through the war and the period after the ceasefire. Written by Anonymous

Great but Profoundly Disturbing
25 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Toronto Film Festival and was very moved by it. There's nothing happy about it, though, so be warned that it is an exhausting emotional experience that will leave you feeling somewhat angry and helpless.

The likelihood of this film ever seeing a general release in the US is remote to non-existent. It's just too politically charged and will probably be viewed as anti-Israel (which I don't think it is). I'm hoping that at the very least it will be available for download on the internet or, heaven forbid, it will be released on DVD. I think this is a very important film for the general public to see because it looks at the conflict between Jews and Palestinians in very human terms. Yes, it's true that the perspective we see is that of the Palestinians, but what's wrong with that? It's called "Point of View" filmmaking. Not everything has to be a balanced piece of journalism, especially when deeply human stories are involved. Anyway, I hope you get a chance to see it.
