Fokstrot / Foxtrot

FOKSTROT je snažan i kontroverzan film izraelskog reditelja Samuela Maoza.

Kada im se na vratima pojave vojni predstavnici s viješću o sinovoj pogibiji, Michael i Dafna slamaju se pod teretom očaja. Izlizani izrazi sućuti i šuplje patriotske fraze vojnih birokrata samo pogoršavaju situaciju. Dok Dafna bijeg traži u sedativima, Michael upada u vrtlog gnjeva, a onda doživljava iznenađenje čija nevjerovatnost gotovo parira nadrealnom vojnom iskustvu njegova sina Jonathana. Strukturiran u tri stilski različita dijela, FOXTROT iz nekoliko perspektiva prikazuje intenzitet i apsurd kulture militarizma.

Naizmjence duboko emotivan i ironičan, s humorom koji ujeda gdje najviše boli, ovaj odvažan i vizualno impresivan film nagrađen je u Veneciji Srebrnim lavom.

FOXTROT is powerful and controversial  film directed by Israeli director Samuel Maoz. 

When military representatives ring their bell with news of their son’s demise, Michael and Daphna collapse under utter desperation. Trite condolences and empty patriotic phrases of the military bureaucrats only aggravate the situation. While Daphna turns to sedatives for solace, Michael falls into a pit of rage, but then experiences something so surprising and unlikely that it’s almost like his son’s surreal military experience. Structured as three stylistically different parts, FOXTROT shows the intensity and absurdity of the culture of militarism from several perspectives.

Alternatingly emotional and ironic with biting humour, this bold and visually impressive film won the Silver Lion grand jury prize in Venice.
