Mohammed Bakri in Esther


1986 NR

Director Amos Gitai's feature starts as a low-budget retelling of the Old Testament tale of Esther, who saved the Jews from the manipulations of Haman. Slowly, documentary elements creep in. Jackhammers and sirens are heard in the background. A pivotal scene takes place at a modern junkyard as Gitai's true concerns become apparent and the actors break character to describe their own connections to the bigotry and conflict dramatized in the film.
