It's not easy to turn one of the most controversial events of the 20th century into a movie that makes your eyes roll, but "O Jerusalem" does this and worse. Shaping the founding of the State of Israel into a middle school history lesson - complete with textbook dialogue and strained neutrality - Elie Chouraqui's clunking film would much rather bore than offend. Based on a 1972 novel by Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre, this movie views the conflict through the eyes of two American friends, a Jew (J. J. Feild) and an Arab (Saïd Taghmaoui).
Touching on every bullet point - the 1946 bombing of the King David Hotel, the United Nations vote to divide Palestine the following year - the filmmakers struggle for fairness, and as a result most of the film's ire is borne by the British, who appear as pompous and callous wardens all too happy to cut and run.
