Michael and Dafna are devastated when Army officials show up at their home to announce the death of their son Jonathan. While his sedated wife rests, Michael spirals into a whirlwind of anger only to experience one of life's unfathomable twists, which rival the surreal military experiences of his son.Written by
A true foxtrot masterpiece, moving forward, sideways and back
This film was not well received by the Israeli military, because it contains severe criticism to them. A surprising movie, going in unexpected directions many times during its narrative. It was a strong candidate for best foreign film at the Oscars, but the Israeli government lobbied (and succeeded) to keep it out of the competition. A pity, since the directing is absolutely brilliant.
