Waltz with Bashir



A pack of feral dogs tear across an anonymous street striking terror in the hearts of the pedestrians. If at all your mind was wandering this scene will snap it  back in place. From there on you venture in to the mind of Ari Folman in his quest to bring back his buried memories of the Lebanon War. A unique use of animation in an almost documentary like fashion to portray the scars a war leaves behind on the human psyche.

Very nicely done. Only thing is I found a bit abrupt in parts and also the ending. Maybe that was the style or maybe it was the Indian censors at work. Will never know.

I can't seem to remember how this ended. However I don't think the ending was abrupt as I would have mentioned it in the review. Did you see the film in India?
