Foxtrot

The first third of this Israeli film is almost too hard to bear. A father and mother are visited by the military representatives who bring the sad news that their son has been killed in the line of duty. The next 40 minutes we are shown the horrific emotions that a father would go through at this moment. I was saying to myself, “I am not sure if I want to watch this for another hour or so.” But then the film takes an unexpected turn and we get a break.

The rhythm and the mood of the film change dramatically. The film changes once more for the last 30 minutes. I call the film a genuine creative achievement. But it is quite heavy and if you are looking for light entertainment you should wait for a better moment to see this film.
