Product Description

Ari Ben Canaan, capo di un'organizzazione clandestina israeliana, riesce a far imbarcare seicento profughi ebrei su una nave commerciale liberandoli da un campo di prigionia a Cipro con l'intento di raggiungere la Palestina. L'esercito britannico scopre immediatamente il piano e ne ordina il rientro immediato. Ari e il suo gruppo rifiutano coraggiosamente di arrendersi, rischiando la loro vita per una causa più importante: l'indipendenza di Israele.

Canada and Australia have a well established infuriating record of releasing great films on Blu-ray not available elsewhere that they then ruin by inferior transfers without subtitles. Her Majesty Mrs Brown, The Red Violin, The Killing Fields, The Lighthorsemen and the Black Robe are just a few examples. Exodus falls somewhat into the same mould. There are no extras and no subtitles. The transfer however is definitely better than my DVD which although well equipped with subtitles was non anamorphic with black bars on all sides and most DVDs of Exodus had the same problem. Here the transfer is full wide screen and it looks a lot better than the DVD although it has obviously not had any remastering, just a scan at a higher bit level. The price is cheap and if your hearing is good this is a better buy than the DVD but why oh why in this digital age when subtitle addition is so easy cannot more consideration be given to the tens of millions who are either hearing impaired or have English as a second language (or both!!) In France and Germany the releases on Blu have local subtitles, why not for English speakers too??

A very long movie, but quite enjoyable, however much sanitised it may appear. Paul Newman, however, cannot escape from the mannerisms which accompany method acting. Peter Lawford is somewhat "over the top" as the British officer. One interesting point, apart from the fact that the ill fated Sal Mineo also starred with Newman in "Somebody up there likes me", is that David Opatoshu, who appeared as the Jewish Irgun leader, also appeared some years later as a Jewish rabbi-priest in "Masada". I personally feel that the movie does full justice to the Leon Uris novel.

By Kona TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 6 Oct. 2008
Format: DVD
As the story opens in Cyprus, several hundred Jewish refugees have just been taken off a boat headed for Palestine and incarcerated in a British prison camp. Jewish activist Ari Ben Canaan (Paul Newman) decides to stage a mass escape and send them all to Palestine on a new ship, which is dubbed "Exodus." On board the ship are teen refugees Karen and Dov (Sal Mineo) and Kitty Freeman (Eva Marie Saint), an American nurse.

It was a formidable task trying to transfer the huge novel to the screen, and it isn't completely successful. Newman is an odd choice, but gives a good performance as the stalwart hero. Saint is completely wrong for her part; she's unattractive and unappealing. The script doesn't help either; their so-called romance is practically non-existent. Sal Mineo was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his convincing portrayal of a child who survived the Warsaw ghetto.

The soundtrack by Ernest Gold is magnificent and the movie is actually filmed on location. While it may be a disappointment to those who have read the book, "Exodus" is still interesting and even inspiring.

I give 5 stars for the film itself. It is a great story based on the birth of Israel. It has great actors & is beautifully shot. I give 3.5 stars for the picture quality. It has much better than the DVD but you can see all the scratches etc. I hope that a remastered & restored version is released soon.

There is a story that one Jewish critic stumbled out of the premier of this movie and pointing to the audience demanded of Preminger, the director, "Let my people go!"

Having watched Exodus its easy to understand his reaction to being stuck in a cinema with little option but to endure watching this to the end. This is a film that takes its worthiness seriously and the result is a desperately boring affair. This is not helped by what seems to have been an artistic decision to keep almost all the action off screen. This helps from a propaganda perspective of not depicting the civilian carnage, as well as British military deaths, wrought by the Israeli Irgun bombing of the King David Hotel. But it doesn't add to the entertainment value of the film. Only the prison break sequence does much to get the pulse racing.

The disputes on methods between Hagannah and Irgun are touched upon, but then skated over: the Irgun are portrayed as serene and thoroughly humane despite their adherence to terrorism. Strangely though the character based on Menachem Begin is shown as wholly untroubled by the King David bombing, which he ordered, while accounts suggest that Begin was in fact deeply affected by the unintended civilian casulties. Though this does not appear to have dimmed his ruthlessness in the course of his subsequent career it does indicate a deeper human conflict that would have been artistically interesting to explore.

Politically the film makes some interesting points, expressing hope for a sharing of the land amongst Jews and Arabs, though the reasons why this hasn't happened are barely touched upon.

The acting in the film is a mixed bag: Paul Newman, Eva Marie Saint and Lee J Cobb are of course consummate professionals.
