"Simply and gently, the film takes us to the very roots of things, those which have been nearly forgotten after decades of living in a disaster area – to the natural, warm touch between one child and another (…) Watching this film, I felt how close – truly at arm's length – are the forgiveness and the generous seed that are still alive in us, who are doomed, as it were, to disregard them so that we can 'fulfill our task' – the dreadful task – in the conflict."

David Grossman
