Audience Reviews for Kippur

  • Jul 13, 2009
    Amos Gitai's fictional examination of the Yom Kippur War of 1973 is presented without pretense or embellishment. Like the conflict that inspired it, <i>Kippur</i> is muddy, bloody and disorienting. A fitting commentary on man's perpetual failure to coexist.

    Ignore the usual comments regards to the flow of the film.It's sheer film-making at it's most possible and at it's most believable.The Israeli Platoon,too much dreadfulness and a few comrades who do the job.Is that all?Gitai locates the gene of good/evil inside the petrified eyes of his protagonists amidst trenches and bombings,where the opening and closing scene are the sole moments of self-relief and future hope.

    An Israeli film about the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Largely based on director Amos Gitai?s own experiences, it tell the story of a soldier placed in a chaotic environment, that?s about as much story as one will find here as this is a largely non-narrative film. Gitai often has long takes with minimal camera movement and will often remain focused on seemingly mundane things in hope that if the camera lingers on them they will somehow mean something more. Some may find this filmmaking profound, I found it as boring as dishwater. There are a few farily interesting scenes, but as a whole this film is Thin Red Line Lite at its best, boring and pretentious at its worst.
