5 Broken Cameras is cinema made - not as if - but really, literally because the life of the film-maker depends on it.

Don't look to the film for specifics, but see instead a picture that suggests the impossibility of peace and a broken system, that while effective, practically ensures another go-round with the next generation.

More than or in addition to being a non-fiction, the film is a piece of life told from a personal perspective.

Burnat and Davidi give us access to one slice of the conflict, packaging it into a sturdily constructed work that bristles with barely contained fury.

It's a highly personalised and subjective account of the situation, yet still gives us a clear sense of how complicated life there is.

A fascinating reminder of why the humble video camera can be used as a weapon against political oppression.

It presents with overwhelming power a case of injustice on a massive scale, and gives us a direct experience of what it's like to be on the receiving end of oppression and dispossession ...

It is of course a one-sided film, but a powerful personal testimony: the kind of material that never makes the nightly news.

Despite all the suffering and injustice, the final message is one of optimism that feels neither facile nor tacked-on.

As raw as the material of "5 Broken Cameras" can be, it is also lyrical and elegiac.

[A] bit jagged, inevitably incomplete, and in no way news-breaking: it is simply moving.
