Movie Info

Set in an Israeli maximum security prison, Beyond the Walls (Meachori Hasoragim) focusses on an ethnic "war" between rival prisoners. The opposing factions are headed by Israeli Arnon Zadok and Arab Muhamad Bakri. Insults beget violence, and before long the entire prison threatens to erupt in an orgy of bloodshed. What finally cools the tensions is so simple and touching that to reveal it here would spoil it for you. Suffice to say that the rival gangs decide to organize a united front against the cruelties of their captors. Beyond the Walls was nominated for a Best Foreign Picture Academy Award. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovimore
