Waltz with Bashir
Waltz Im Bashir
Added to my films
One night in a bar, an old friend tells Folman about a recurring nightmare in which he is chased by twenty-six vicious dogs. The two men conclude that there's a connection to their Israeli Army mission in the first Lebanon War of the early Eighties. Folman is surprised that he can't remember a thing about that period in his life. Intrigued and perplexed, he decides to meet and interview old friends and comrades around the world as a means of reclaiming his own memories. "Waltz with Bashir" can be described as an anime documentary, an ingenious and provocative blending of animated film techniques with sharp-edged, often unsettling personal testimony. Israel born Ari Folman (46) completed his military service in the mid-80s and hit the road. When he returned from war he studied filmmaking and debuted with the feature-length documentary "Comfortably Numb" (1991) and now makes documentary and feature series for TV. His newest unconventional film "Waltz with Bashir" was one of the most powerful entries at Cannes Film Festival competition in 2008.
