User Reviews

 
A true foxtrot masterpiece, moving forward, sideways and back
28 January 2018 | by nando1301-1See all my reviews

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.
