Beaufort 2007

  • 4.1
After eighteen years dug into a heavily fortified mountain deep in occupied Lebanon, the last Israeli soldiers enduring constant bombardment at the site of an ancient crusader stronghold called Beaufort receive orders to abandon their posts, detonate the warren of bunkers in which they've tenuously clung to life and victory and come home. Amid redoubled shelling from Hezbollah, the fort's brash, impossibly young commander Liraz (Oshri Cohen) struggles to keep himself and his men safe from a faceless enemy that would turn withdrawal into massacre and transform a just cause into a lost cause. Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2008 Academy Awards®.

Very very good. Captures the intensity and boredom, the "Why are we here?" of IDF soldiers in their last days in the fort on Beaufort mountain, Lebanon, in 1982. The enemy is unseen but deadly, and the commander has to deal with his own inability to control events.
