Lebanon

R| 1 hr. 33 min.

Plot Summary
This tense war film focuses on a group of Israeli soldiers operating a tank in hostile territory during the 1982 conflict in Lebanon. Hindered by tight quarters, limited visibility and stifling heat, the troops inside the tank, including the frustrated Hertzel (Oshri Cohen), begin to quarrel amongst themselves, leaving themselves open to attack by their Lebanese enemies. As their mission -- to clear the area of opposing forces -- progresses, the situation becomes increasingly dire.

  • Never before, not even in the claustrophobic submarine epic "Das Boot," has a physical point of view so completely dictated a philosophical point of view. show more

  • Offers a view of war that is anything but epic. Instead of sweeping battles and swooping fighter planes, in Lebanon we are brought into the impossibly claustrophobic world of a lone tank crew. show more

  • The emotional traumas of young Israeli soldiers drafted into the war with Lebanon in the 1980s are recounted through the eyes of a tank crew in this wrenching concentration of raw emotion directed by Samuel Maoz. show more

    Comparing this movie with "Das Boot" is a travesty! Hardly 10 minutes go by when one of the tank crews exclaims " I have to pee" then they pass an empyty ammo can! If theyspent more than 10 grand making this tripe it was too much. Totally unbelievable and contrived. I only wish that I could have read an honest review like this before wasting my money...
