Israel, France


Everyone wants to gain entry to Israeli society by serving in the IDF. Everyone wants to get through basic training safe and sound, but for some reason, instead of team spirit and cooperation, members of the platoon would rather succeed at one another's expense.

Director's Statement

Yehoshua Kenaz, author of "Infiltration", manages to refine the human experience without currying favour with his readers. Therefore, his protagonists are depicted as authentic human beings, with faults and unique qualities. Kenaz's approach to his protagonists fascinated me and resulted in my attempt to bring the novel to the big screen.
