Mini Review - Lebanon

Lebanon (out Dec 2) won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival. I liked it but not sure if it was worthy of that prestigious honour. It's set in 1982 and looks at 4 Israeli soldiers trying to make their way through Lebanon during a routine mission. Almost every shot is from within the tank - a novel idea. My major qualm was with the characters - I struggled to get to know them. Grade: B.
