Heartbreaking depiction of political conflicts
10 January 2020 | by roger-99-171599See all my reviews

Accomplished filmmaker Dror Zahavi's timely drama depicts the turmoils and conflicts between Israelis and Palestianians seen through Millennials' perspectives and traumas. A respected and tough Maestro is hired to conceive a Chamber Orchestra for peace in the region; Gathering the best musicians from both sides of the war conflict, he is ready for what's coming: as they rehearse their piece, they will also experience a transformational and moving collective process, providing them an examination of themselves and their political senses. In one of several heartbreaking scenes, the Maestro allows them to expose all of their anguish and hate on the face of the others, provoking a self-analysis. Centered on the relationships developed along the production, the film constantly remind us of the importance of tolerance, while trying to adjust their reasons: an impossible romance between an Israeli girl and an Arab, the ego and dispute between the two violin leaders, the figure of "salvation" represented by the Maestro, and the strength of parental guidance. Profound, raw, and sensitive, it's a powerful humanitarian statement, claiming for better days in this broken world.
