No larger aspect of what is in this film can be new to us; but seeing it in this old-friends perspective gives all of it, familiar and new, a novel effect.
What unfolds onscreen is remarkable: The passions and arguments of the past are resurrected in the present.
Reminds us that different people react to madness -- in this case, the Holocaust -- in different ways.
Spending time with these guys is an invigorating treat.
Even if these guys hadn't each gone through so much strife and real tragedy in their life, they're just interesting right now to see them going back and forth.
Less a document of wartime experience than of the mentality one needs to maintain in order to be a fighter, and the danger of attacking, however benignly, cherished beliefs.
'A humanistic piece about how the Holocaust, fascism, and the Second World War left permanent emotional scars on everyone who lived through it.'
Bar-Lev's intimacy with his subjects is remarkable, and it allows him to reveal how these men have managed to become and remain friends.
It's a rarity these days: a film that will leave you thinking.
The fight and its aftermath don't provide an especially satisfying conclusion to the piece.
Even though I'm not sure it should have even been made, the final product is at least emotionally impressive and absolutely debate inspiring.
