''Memory is dynamic, it’s alive. If some details are missing, memory fills in the holes with things that never happened.''

An Israeli film director interviews fellow veterans of the 1982 invasion of Lebanon to reconstruct his own memories of his term of service in that conflict.

As Roger Ebert said, it is a devastating picture. I thought it was a very good and important movie dealing with a horrible page of history but dealing also with the human mind and psychology. It is a very original animated picture and I don't think they would have succeeded to tell this story with a traditional live action version. It is a rather heavy movie but if you don't mind getting depressed... read more

... With Trauma Inducing Tolerance


A wrong assumption that proved genocidal. How infuriatingly futile could lives be worth under the orchestrations of war. Even in animation, in non-linear documentation. Dreams. Delusion. Disillusionment. We're nothing but pawns.

That cacophony of wailing Palestinian women would tingle a guilt long dormant. In fact, the labels... read more

Description: One night at a bar, an old friend tells director Ari Folman about a recurring nightmare in which he is chased by 26 vicious dogs. Every night, the same number of beasts. The two men conclude that there’s a connection to their Israeli Army mission in the first Lebanon War of the early eighties. Ari is surprised that he can’t remember a thing anymore about that period of his life. Intrigued by this riddle, he decides to meet and interview old friends and comrades around the world. He needs to discover the truth about that time and about himself. As Ari delves deeper and deeper into the mystery, his memory begins to creep up ... (more)

“You can achieve and try everything with this concept of animation. I like the recall and research of th epast style,the protogonist talking with friends and psichiatrists, trying to discover his role in a heavy national issue: the guilt of jews commiting a massacre of palestinian lebaneses in Sabra and Shatila, bieng compared with the holocaust. Great moments, the tanks over Lebanon with music a la 'Apocalipsis now', the waltz among the bullets, the dreams.

“... With Trauma Inducing Tolerance

A wrong assumption that proved genocidal. How infuriatingly futile could lives be worth under the orchestrations of war. Even in animation, in non-linear documentation. Dreams. Delusion. Disillusionment. We're nothing but pawns.

That cacophony of wailing Palestinian women would tingle a guilt long dormant. In fact, the labels (Christians, Phalangists, Muslims, Palestinians, Lebanese, Jews) are enough to tickle for a laugh at how we've divided ourselves into categories, classes, races, castes, sects, adherences; as if incendiaries that would soon only fizzle out after a body count.

No wonder Ari Folman didn't have a say at all. The subconscious just had to do what it could. To forget.

But the visions of Sabra and Sha” read more

"19.12. TV, re-watch DIRECTED BY Ari Folman Not actually an uplifting movie. Cool, original animation about the 1982 Lebanon war. Made in documentary style, it is rather "dry" in a sense. Bar some fantastical scenes, it's a very realistic portrayal which is not really something I'm looking for in animated films. It's good though; it's probably even great for someone who's interested in the conflict. It's got some great use of music, too! "

" My first watch of Waltz with Bashir was in its original Hebrew language without subtitles. Unfortunately I don't understand one word of Hebrew, so I just watched the pictures. It was hard to follow, but the pictures were good enough to keep me captured. Now the second watch was in German and finally I've understood something. Which was great. The dream scene in the sea is awesome. "
