Storyline

Brutal terror attack. Suicide bomber detonates bomb on a Saturday night in the heart of Haifa. The bomber is injured and rushed to the nearby hospital in critical condition, and with him many of the wounded attack victims. The burdensome situation that night leads to an intensive chain of events, serious doubts and bursts of emotion for many of the characters: The four police officers responsible for securing the attacker at the hospital, the doctor who happened to be on duty that turbulent night, the swift nurse working beside him, the group of injured people hospitalized in such close proximity to the terrorist and their family members who are naturally caught in the deep turmoil of it all. Amongst these characters is the prominent Kobi Amar; a 37 year-old policeman, who is the father of two and married to Tamar. Kobi is faced with increasing familial and professional obstacles while commanding over three other policemen the night of the attack and guarding the injured terrorist who...

Good script, with surprising changes of direction
7 April 2018 | by NozzSee all my reviews

You know the cliche where the distraught woman or child feebly punches at the big guy before falling into his embrace? That's the one thing wrong with this movie. I just wanted to get that complaint off my chest. Otherwise, the script is admirably creative. There's more incident and characterization than is necessary just to compel the main plot, and the main plot turns out not even to be what we might originally think it is. The actors are believable and help nourish the script's apparent message that our arguments are not with purely and obviously malevolent people but with fellow citizens of a wounded land. The same writing/directing team made a similar point in their next film, Homeport, which is about the world of the dock workers. In that microcosm, the script makes it a little easier to point at the flaws in the system; in Wounded Land it's harder.
