Foxtrot

 

Rated R · 112 minutes · 2018

Drama
A parent's worst nightmare befalls the middle-class Feldmanns of Tel Aviv when soldiers arrive at the door with news that their elder child has been killed in action. The first quarter of this crafty Israeli drama focuses tightly on the father (Lior Ashkenazi of Norman) as his numbness gives way to grief, and writer-director Samuel Moaz elongates moments of pure anguish as few filmmakers do. But Moaz is a daring, unpredictable storyteller, and his eccentric plot construction, which also takes into account the son's last days, turns an intimate emotional drama into a larger statement about fate and justice. With Sarah Adler and Yonaton Shiray. In Hebrew with subtitles.
