WALTZ WITH BASHIR

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Part of Foreign Language Oscar Contenders, this month on Curzon12. The memories of war are the basis of this extraordinary award-winning film that explores a former soldier's experiences. Ari Folman's animated documentary, based on his own experiences as an Israeli soldier during the Lebanon conflict in the early 1980, opens with a nightmare. The director, who also narrates, describes a pack of wild dogs racing down a city street. It's a metaphor for that past and how it haunts Folman. To come to terms with what he experienced, he visits old army friends to chat about their life. What emerges is a tale of individuals scarred by what they saw and did. Propelled by a driving soundtrack (the score was written by Max Richter), Folman's film is like nothing else you will have seen and holds nothing back in its portrayal of war, and the emotional and psychological detritus it leaves in its wake. BBFC Certified 18 - Contains strong violence and brief explicit images. ★★★★ "Folman might have created his generation's very own Apocalypse Now" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ "Astonishing, unforgettable: you have to see it" - Dan Jolin, Empire ★★★★★ "A blistering, powerful work" - Sukhdev Sandhu, The Telegraph
