Narrative | 2007 | 131 min.
Directed by: Joseph Cedar

Located in southern Lebanon, Beaufort Castle is one of the few medieval forts utilized by modern military forces, and provided Israeli forces with an important strategic position during the South Lebanon War. This film takes place at the end of this 18-year war as IDF troops prepare to abandon the fort and return home. Liraz Liberti, leading the troops at Beaufort, must come to terms that they must evacuate--after having spent so long defending the fortress. Chronicling the soldiers' daily lives, their hopes and fears, and the moral dilemnas of wartime, this claustrophobic film has been compared to Letters From Iwo Jima and classic WWI bunker films. Completed just a month before the Second Lebanon War broke out, this movie provides a timely look at both the horrors and nobility of modern warfare.
