Prisoners of War
Radio Times
Review by:
David Brown

Just how broken the two former captives are is made plain as Uri reads a stack of letters written during his years of captivity by his now late mother and Nimrode watches DVDs of happy family events in which he doesn’t feature.

Both sequences are affecting and heartbreaking, but one man definitely not convinced is Haim Cohen, whose disarming Lieutenant Columbo façade is now getting him results.

Cohen is a tenacious operator who will stop at nothing to get to the bottom of the discrepancies in the men’s statement — one tactic in particular will leave you gasping at how emotionally manipulative he can be.
