Carmel (2009)

Sobre o filme

A kaleidoscope of images and associations from the distant Jewish past and the immediate Israeli present, sculpted from both collective and personal memories. Using Jeanne Moreau`s voice as a kind of chorus "she recites texts and poems in voice-over", Gitai visits an Israeli army encampment, where he laments the “half truths and half lies” on television and the “endless war” that his son is now engaged in fighting. As a counterpoint to these ancient and modern wars, he introduces memories of his mother through letters, sounds and anecdotes, a mother who spent much of the sixties in London.
