Audience Reviews for James' Journey to Jerusalem
[font=Century Gothic][color=blue]"James' Journey to Jerusalem" is about a young pilgrim, James, from a small village in Africa on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. On the way, he is detained at the airport in Israel under suspicion of seeking work. He is freed by a corrupt customs official to work in the employ of Shimi. James is surprised to find Israel a secular, materialistic state.[/color][/font] [font=Century Gothic][color=#0000ff][/color][/font] [font=Century Gothic][color=#0000ff]"James' Journey to Jerusalem" is a thoughtful and occasionally poignant movie. It sidesteps stereotypes to present a story about capitalism and the state of immigration in Israel(also covered in "Alila" and "Yana's Friends" but here racism is added into the mix). I thought it did a better job of showing the adjustments to a new society than "Lost Boys of Sudan" did. It is also helped by strong central performances. [/color][/font]
