  1. found this one by accident whilst trawling the Virgin 500 films to rent online last night.

    Basically its set in Lebanon during the 2000 Israeli withdrawal. Focusing on a group of Golani soldiers stationed at the old Crusader fort of Beaufort. Not much in the way of action, but does show very well the hardships both physical & physcological that the average IDF grunt has to bear. Anyone who has ever spent time in a hardend shelter & endured sporadic mortar fire will i am sure bring back a few memories when watching this one.
    Quite well put together, good acting, nice brooding atmosphere throughout.
  2. The book on which the film is based is a good read (now transalated into English).
  3. I've heard good things about it
  4. This is a good film. Based very heavily on actual events. The last post commander in 2000 (Lieutenant Liraz Liberti in the film) is said to be a battalion commander nowadays.
