This review is from: Prisoners Of War \ Tv Series [DVD] (DVD)
When the US series HOMELAND started last year, I never missed a single episode. Learning that the idea for HOMELAND was born in Israel with its own very successful series HATUFIM, I tried and tried to get it to watch. But there was no way outside of Israel. After finding it here I ordered it on the spot and I have to say it's worth every single penny. Even when it comes just with its original Hebrew audio and English subtitles and also when it's coming without any extras, you should get your copy and watch. Excellent drama, excellent actors. While the story fortunately is complete fiction for the US (as far as we know), it has been daily reality in Israel for years. Gilad Shalit has been held captive by Hamas for more than 5 years before being released for a heavy price. The characters of HATUFIM are portrayed being released after 17 years in captivity, coming back into a life they do not know, heavily burdened with experiences and traumas of torture they cannot share.
Watch HATUFIM - Prisoners of War, it's worth because it's much more intense than HOMELAND, even whe not so fast and full of action.
