Critic Reviews for To Die in Jerusalem

Audience Reviews for To Die in Jerusalem

  • Oct 13, 2010
    "To Die in Jerusalem" is a heartbreaking documentary that starts with a suicide bombing in a supermarket in Jerusalem. What sets this incident apart is the similarities between Ayat al-Akhras, the murderer(the movie reminds me why I hate the term martyr so much), and Rachel Levy, the victim, who were both 17 and bore a striking resemblance to each other. But that's where the similarities end as each was taught conflicting narratives about what is and what should be Israel and Palestine. In an attempt to understand some of the thinking behind this heinous act, Rachel's mother wants to talk to Ayat's mother. And there is a lot of talking here but very little listening with so little physical distance to cover but so much emotional terrain. Much of that concerns the resistance that some Palestinians feel they must wage against Israel but surely there has to be a better way than violence.(For example, in no way does non-violent protest have to be passive.) That just leads to a siege mentality on the other side of the fence as the cycle repeats as nobody can be allowed to forget every grievance but not who started the conflict in the first place.

    Two beautiful girls. One was a Palestinian suicide bomber, the other her victim. This documentary explores how their deaths affected their families- especially the mothers. This has subtitles but I found it very poignant and informative. Although I felt for both mothers, I think that glorifying martyrdom only perpetuates the suicide bombings.
