Kippur (2000)

Israel 123m, Colour
Director: Amos Gitai; Cast: Liron Levo, Tomer Russo, Uri Klauzner, Yoram Hattab, Guy Amir

KippurKippur is an anti-war drama based upon the director’s experiences in 1973 during the Yom Kippur War. A slowly paced, almost documentary styled film, Kippur is the account of a student named Weinraub and his friend Russo who join an emergency medical team after they lose contact with their unit on the way to the Golan Heights. Unlike most films of this genre, which depict the battles, Kippur focusses on the immediate aftermath of the fighting. In receiving a message on the utter futility of war, the viewer is often lost in the noise, smoke and confusion of the team’s seemingly endless and exhausting struggle to rescue their fellow soldiers (Klaus Ming September 2013).
