Put simply, this is submarine drama
, but set in a tank in the Middle East. It follows 24 hours in the lives of a four-man crew of Israeli conscripts at the start of Israel's first war with Lebanon, in 1982. The action takes place almost entirely within the confines of the tank's interior as the soldiers search a hostile town for signs of the enemy, and brilliantly conveys the chaos and claustrophobia of tank warfare. Writer/director Samuel Maoz fought in the Lebanon conflict and his first-hand experience of combat shows. This is war, up close and personal, and the sheer terror of the hapless young men who inhabit the tin-can killing machine is palpable.
Four Israeli army recruits are formed into a tank crew and sent on a mission to search a hostile town. As they struggle to cope with being cut off from the outside world in their claustrophobic vehicle, they find the town in question has already been destroyed in bombing raids and Syrian resistance fighters are surrounding them. Drama, starring Itay Tiran and Yoav Donat. In Hebrew, Arabic, French and English.
