This is one of those really good movies that's going to be very tough to recommend since so many people, i think, would have a hard time with it.
It's basically about an Israeli family who lose their son, while serving in the military. It takes you to all sorts of places and you can bet your house that you will not be able to predict what will happen.
There are some comedic elements, but it mostly works as a pretty heavy drama. The acting is really strong which can be rough because being able to feel a parent's anguish is no picnic.
Israel has boycotted the movie since, I'm assuming, they think it portrays their military in a fairly incompetent light.
It's a rough ride but the acting is just so strong that it's mesmerizing to watch. It's filmed really well too. I actually sort of want to try that potted meat...
I had to take a phone call and actually missed what may be the most pivotal scene. I'm an idiot.
Heart rating: 5 stars (absolutely, you'll feel plenty in this)
