  • The filmmakers split time between history and personal drama in ways that do full service to neither.

    November 15, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • In trying to be sensitive to such a controversial issue, O Jerusalem glazes over important events settling for mediocrity while giving a history lesson more appropriate for high school.

    November 21, 2007 | Rating: C
  • O Jerusalem is as overstated and expository as a historical pageant, from the drippy music to a sputtering, running gag involving funky old jalopies to clichd speeches and teary-eyed deaths and a final voice-over crying out for peace.

    December 7, 2007 | Rating: C
  • I felt as though I could have gathered the same information about Israel's beginnings from a pamphlet, and saved myself the film's forthright baggage

Audience Reviews for O Jerusalem

  • Aug 19, 2012
    Decent movie. Nothing spectacular, though...

    An interesting depiction based upon the book (also titled 'O Jerusalem') that centralizes upon events that led to the rise of the statehood of Israel. Great cast- Said Taghmaoui, J.J. Field, Mel Raido, Maria Papas, Patrick Bruel, and Ian Holm. Worthy!
