One of the most visually dazzling, strikingly original and stunningly realised films about war ever made, this landmark in animation is an extraordinary, ingenious work of devastating intensity.

Refreshing animation - Waltz with Bashir review by Jawbreaker

Spoiler Alert
08/02/2009

A documentary about a massacre during the Lebbon war, however using animation for the majority of proceedings. Even at 90mins I felt this was a touch too long, however come the closing moments the silence in the cinema was extremely powerful. Full of unforgettable imagery, great use of music and first hand accounts, it managed to engage viewers who would normally be put off by documentaries, animated movies or just foreign films in general.

Cast aside your worries and check out this hebrew film if you can. Up there with Wall-E as one of my favs of 2008.

Fantastic cinematography - Waltz with Bashir review by Xeres

Spoiler Alert

Brilliant piece of directing, very arresting and honest. The use of an animation style overlaid onto the film is not "cartoonesque" but adds punch and clarity to the story as it unfolds.

Purposeful, I would recommend this to anyone interested in the psyche and thoughts of the martial man.
