Waltz with Bashir (2008) Movie Review

Waltz with Bashir is a movie-like documentary that follows Ari Folman through his journey to regain the memories from the 1982 Israel-Lebanon War. It is a captivating view from a regular soldier of the occupying country. After meeting with an old friend that tells Ari about his memories from the war he realizes he can not recall anything from his time there and sets out to interview fellow soldiers that were with him during the conflict. When meeting with them we see his memory returning and with it the horrors of war.

This is an animated film like no other; drawing on many different styles of animation. I was truly left speechless after watching this powerful autobiography. Although it is a Hebrew language film there is an English track that is very well done.

9 out of 10 - Recommended for those over 18 - Rated R
