Ratings & Reviews

  1. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film Bethlehem

    A great film which demonstrates the tense and fragile relationship between Israeli intelligence forces and Palestinian informants. I don't think that the film felt entirely neutral, but it also showed the lack of innocence on both sides, most brutally from the Israeli forces. It demonstrates the complexity of the situation, but also the complexity within each person who's a part of it.

  2. Joe Pryweller's rating of the film Bethlehem

    The relationship between informer and informant at the heart of this movie are its key elements, as is the conceit that no one is morally innocent in the murky Middle East conflict. A thriller about having to choose sides when there is no right or wrong. The direction is a bit flat and the ending abrupt, but that doesn't take too much from a nice film debut.

  3. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Bethlehem

    Well balanced and thoughtful look at a complicated situation.

  4. msmichel's rating of the film Bethlehem

    Strong debut feature from director Vuval Adler that offers a peak into the world of the Shin Bet and their network of informants inside Palestine. The film wisely doesn't choose sides or provide boogeymen but shares the responsibility both sides have in the ongoing conflict. While the film fails to rise to its challenges it still provides an interesting watch and some discussion to chew on after its screening.

  5. Jorge Mourinha's rating of the film Bethlehem

    Father figures.

  6. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Bethlehem

    ... betrayals and impasses are a constant throughout the film, mirroring the huge complexity of a devastating conflict. (3.5 stars)
