Dir: Samuel Maoz, Israel, 2017, 113 mins, Hebrew dialogue with subtitles
Lior Ashkenazi, Sarah Adler, Yonathon Shiray
A compelling drama in three acts following a couple's intense reaction after army officials show up at their home to announce the death of their son. Increasingly frustrated by overzealous mourning relatives and well-meaning army bureaucrats, the father spirals into a whirlwind of anger while his wife rests, sedated. Brilliantly constructed with a visual audacity that serves the subject rather than the other way around, this is filmmaking on a fearless level.
