“...for long stretches [Beaufort] feels more like science fiction. The small band of Israeli soldiers who are its main characters inhabit a mountain outpost in southern Lebanon that might as well be a space station marooned in a hostile galaxy. Its perspective on Israeli military action is neither guilty nor jingoistic but instead almost philosophical." - A.O. Scott, NYTimes. Ishai Adar's score is beautiful.
Languid at times, punctuated by moments of explosive tumult. Tension mounts as Israeli soldiers defend a remote mountain enclave. Nice location shots at an ancient stone fort. Plenty of commiserating between soldiers voicing heartfelt opinions about the foibles of combat and being stationed on a remote mountaintop, albeit with a spectacular view of the rugged Lebanese landscape. Intriguing drama of realistic caliber
