The new film gives a "West Wing"-esque behind-the-scenes look at key historical events, but with more cocktail-party anecdotes than analysis.
So resolved to tell you something that it never notices it's overtelling you everything.
It also suffers from its one-sided perspective which often fails to provide sufficient informational context. But it nonetheless provides a vividly personal account of the country's travails during some of its most tumultuous times.
The film's incessant voiceover narration does often feel like an interminable suppertime history lesson delivered by your favorite poli-sci-obsessed granduncle.
The cumulative effect of the Soldiers & Peacemakers' straight-forward and blunt narration of linear history is a film only slightly less dry than matzoh.
His personal insights are fascinating, but you need a good working knowledge of Israel's history since 1948 to place Avner's recollections into a wider context.
a respectable adaptation of Avner's book, with a straightforward account of events
