This documentary's goals are noble ones, but its execution is something else again.
A brutally uncompromising blast of outrage, Vibeke Lokkeberg's "Tears of Gaza" is less a documentary than a collage of suffering.
The cameras linger on the faces of children as they tell their stories, unaffected and open.
A shattering anti-war movie that spotlights the too-soon death of innocence. Dispiritingly relevant and exceedingly effective in the gall and sadness it provokes.
The purpose of 'Tears of Gaza' is to make viewers uncomfortable and to take action instead of tuning out.

There's no coddling the audience in Vibeke Løkkeberg's verité heave of disgust as the full consequences on the Palestinian people of Operation Cast Lead are made sickeningly clear.
