This film is a compelling family tragedy played out in three acts. It opens in Michael and Dafna’s stylish apartment in Tel Aviv. One morning soldiers knock at the door with news that their son, Jonathan, has been killed on national service. Their reactions to their son’s death and the shock news that arrives later, takes us into second act. This unfolds at a godforsaken desert checkpoint called Foxtrot, where, with three others, young Jonathan is still very much alive. Bored and restless, they while away their time occasionally allowing a camel to pass through, but beware any Arab revellers who drive up. Then the soldiers may get jumpy and shoot first and ask questions later. This is war of pure futility with a series of devastating events that take us back to Tel Aviv for the final act. In Hebrew with English subtitles.
