Cinema opened: Waltz with Bashir

February 15, 2009

Animated documentary Waltz with Bashir by Ari Folman was last year screened and discussed a lot at mayor European film festivals. I liked the movie, too. Particularly, its recording technique that works truly, and the screenplay which is based on linear plot…


Synopsis goes around the following story:
‘In 1982, Ari Folman was a 19-year-old infantry soldier in the Israel Defense Forces. In 2006, he meets with a friend from his army service period, who tells him of the nightmares connected to his experiences from the 1982 Lebanon War. Folman is surprised to find out that he does not remember a thing from the same period.

Later that night he has a vision from the night of the Sabra and Shatila massacre, the reality of which he is unable to tell. In his memory, he and his soldier friends are bathing at night by the seaside in Beirut under the light of flares descending over the city. Folman rushes off to meet another friend from his army service, who advises him to discuss it with other people who were in Beirut at the same time in order to understand what happened there and to relive his own memory. The film follows Folman in his conversations with friends, a psychologist and the reporter Ron Ben-Yishai who was in Beirut at the same time. ‘
