Under The Bombs is a road movie and as a reviewer I need to avoid warning you on the sights you will be seeing. The subject is the Lebanon in 2006. The film opens with a hill-side of high-rise buildings getting a pasting from the Israeli airforce. We are told this exceeded 30 days. Now there is (after a fashion) a ceasefire. A modern Arab women flies in from Dubai to look for her sister and her own son who were living down in the South before the invasion hit. She hires the only taxi driver willing to risk a journey into South where the SLA, Hizbollah and the IDF face-off. The driver, Toni, is (I assume) a Christian. She is a Muslim. He appears to be a lubricious, greedy individual, she to be the self-absorbed, mannerless, modern women who you can see wandering around Chelsea or Kensington in some variety of Vallium haze. But both are about to get a makeover as they head into a modern society that has been smashed up by giants (at times with the feel of a post-disaster film), encounter a rich cast of people with an opinion and a story, and come to the final denouement.
Under the Bombs is certainly good at giving you the feeling of being caught in a disaster. Both the leads are not where they want to be in life and afflicted deeply by previous decisions, there is a Woody Allen film there on its own. It is a very powerful film but I suspect it may not engage you until perhaps the end.
It will however make you understand "collateral damage" as a term.
