Trivia

The Yom Kippur war started on October 6th, 1973. It is still an open wound in collective Israeli memory, This fact adds a certain dramatic effect to the war against the demons depicted in the climax of the movie, which also takes place during Yom Kippur. See more »

Goofs

The documentary in the beginning of the movie was allegedly filmed during Yom Kippur (day of atonement), the holiest day of the Jewish year. During this day every shop is closed, there are no radio and TV broadcast, it is a day dedicated exclusively to prayer and fasting. Under normal circumstances, no religious Jew would interview for a filming crew (the Italian priest). Then again, these are not normal circumstances. See more »

disappointed
25 January 2016 | by StararmourSee all my reviews

Jeruzalem (2015) started off decently, and i will echo some of the other reviewers in saying that the footage of the city itself is beautiful (i really want to go to Jerusalem now!), but apart from the obviously pretty scenery, there isn't very much going on. the back-story is hinted at, the character development is sub-par (leaving the viewer unaffected by their happy/ sad fates), and the creatures/ demons look way more promising in the trailer than in the movie itself.

All in all, the investment this movie demands is nominal, leaving me very 'meh' at the end. oh, the only response that sticks is annoyance at the main protagonist's stupidity (constant sobbing/ screaming type). Also, how long does it take someone to figure where to aim?!

major disappointment. :/
