This movie was a major disappointment. Instead of being a critical analysis (animated or not) of the tragic events in 1982 at Sabra and Satilla refugee camps, it turns out to be an apologist's, self-serving account of Israel's role in the massacre of the Palestinian refugee camps in southern Lebanon, camps created by the Israeli ethnic cleansing of 750,000 Palestinians (while murdering

AIRIFEEKOM -- I cannot understand what you are trying to convey, because your English is not so good. Paradise Now is about young Palestinian me wanting to become suicide bombers. Waltz With Bashir is about men growing old and realizing the mistakes of war and violence, but nevertheless its unfortunate necessity in certain ************* beyone one's control.

HALNMO11: there are many movies that are anti -violence, but do you think they will put a spot light on it??? I dont think so my friend.

Before that "Walk on Water", and others. I am still waiting for the first

This is a powerful, poignant and provocative film, told in an unconventional and effective fashion. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
An absolute stunner, a feature-length animated documentary, from Israel, in which the force of moving drawings amplifies eerily powerful accounts of war, shaky remembrance and rock-solid repression. Full Review
