Vals Im Bashir (Waltz with Bashir) by Ari Folman, 2008 (R)

Documentary with Ron Ben-Yishai, Ronny Dayag, Ari Folman, Dror Harazi

"One night at a bar, an old friend tells director Ari 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 is a connection between the dream and their Israeli Army mission in the first Lebanon War of the early eighties. Ari is surprised he cant 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 in surreal images." IMDB

A strange documentary-Animation movie talking about what no-one wants to talk about. A large part of it is polemic. The form is technologically advanced although quite tiring to watch and honestly not impressive (robot effect, layers of 3d obvious), but the content is very important for the next generations to understands facts about Sabra and Shatila massacre in Beirut, in 1982 Lebanon War.
