Product Description

Beirut 1982: the First Lebanon War is in full force as the Israeli army clashes with PLO militants and Syrian and Lebanese forces. Living among the rubble and unexploded shells is Fahed, a young Palestinian boy who has recently lost his father in an air raid. When he captures Yoni (Stephen Dorff), an Israeli pilot shot down over his town, Fahed seizes the opportunity to use his prisoner as a way to get back into Israel and visit the town where his grandfather once lived. On the journey the two must overcome bitter differences if they are to survive and a tenuous friendship slowly begins to take root amid the barren debris of war...

Powerful, moving and utterly compelling, ZAYTOUN is a modern classic of the war genre from the award-winning producer of THE KING'S SPEECH.

3.0 out of 5 stars Zaytoun dvd 15 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Artificial Eye up to their old tricks again of releasing .... this time a DVD in which there are NO SUBTITLES in English when English is spoken which is very often during the movie .....those with HOH problems will suffer badly....Subtitles are in English ONLY when a foreign language is spoken . My advice is TO WAIT for the USA release as the Region 1 releases for this type of film almost always carry TWO sub-title tracks ..1 . movie subtitled in English all the way through 2 .Subtitled in English as the UK release i.e only in foreign language .

5.0 out of 5 stars ZAYTOUN 14 May 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I purchased this DVD Zaytoun I was expecting the usual israeli movie that palestinians are bad and mad. What was my surprise was that none of this appears in the movie. It's a story between an israeli pilot and a young palestinian. They began as ennemis and along the movie, friendship and respect developed. Heart warming and a certain hope that one day those two could cohabite as they use to centuries ago. Only time would tell.

I highly recommand this movie. A must see!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Film set in war torn Beirut. 24 April 2013
By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Set in war ravaged Beirut in 1982 during what became known as The First Lebanon War we meet a young, Palestinian, refugee, boy called Fahed. His mother is dead and he lives with his Father and Grandfather in a flea blown `house' in one of the camps, I believe it is Shatilla which became infamous for the massacre that took place there and in Sabra in September of that year. This point however, is not alluded to in this film. He wants to make money on the Beirut streets where Palestinians are none too welcomed by the local `hosts' play football and not go to school.

Instead he is forced to do militia training and life seems anything but good, in his class the desks of his dead friends have a framed photograph of them as a small shrine but also to let the kids remember. Then during an Israeli air raid his father is killed. This makes Fahed take militia a lot more seriously, so when a plane is shot down he is the first to want to capture the pilot. This turns out to be Yoni (Stephen Dorff - `Public Enemies'). Fahed just wants to kill him, but he soon realises that with the help of his enemy he might be able to get back to the land he still calls home. What follows is an unholy alliance of the two and a bizarre road trip through the war zone. That is an expansion of the advertised synopsis so is not a plot spoiler in case you were concerned.

This is a really well made film, the attention to detail is excellent and I could not really tell if it was CGI for the planes and armaments, which are incidental, this is most definitely not a war film. It is sad it is moving and it will make you think. This highlights a war almost forgotten and still stoically ignored by most of the rest of the world and if a film can shine light on the tragedy, then it has my vote every day.
