New film by Samuel Maoz, director of “Lebanon” (Golden Lion 2009), this year’s winner of the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival. Compelling family tragedy about loss and grief. Soldiers visit Michael and Daphna Feldmann and inform them about the sudden and tragic death of their son Jonathan at a desolate military post. Michael is getting more and more frustrated by the never-ending visits of a whole army of relatives and bureaucrats. While his wife griefs in silence, he is overwhelmed by anger. We also witness the absurd, surreal experiences of his son. The film features the highly regarded Israeli actor Lior Ashkenazi, well-known for his role in the black comedy “Big Bad Wolves”, one of Quentin Tarantino’s favorite movies.
