It's not that it's bad, it's that it never could have been good. It's an irredeemable disaster from start to finish, an adventure that entertains only via glimpses of the adventure it should have been,A simplistic political allegory, a cliché script, and a lot of money from Europe,The local critics will probably be praised, the Academy members will award prizes, and the spectators wont show up to watch this one. It is amazing how Israelis react violently to the political criticism of those behind Israel's investment, and are totally impervious to the political agenda of the European parties that invest the money. The emotional and moral complexity of Israelis, as human individuals and as figures with an Israeli identity, the complex political reality of the Middle East, the unique truth in detail - are all rejected, discarded and actually erased for a simplistic, crude depiction of political allegory. Metaphor or allegory, where has the penetrating gaze gone, where is the complexity of life, where is the empathy?
