Samuel Maoz följer upp guldlejonvinnaren Lebanon med en mörk men humoristisk triptyk som med uppfinningsrikt bildberättande plockar isär ett militariserat samhälle i Israels Oscarbidrag.

Filmen består av tre delar, som med skilda visuella stilar och känslomässiga ackord gör en psykologisk analys av det israeliska samhället. I den första scenen ringer telefonen hemma hos familjen Feldman. En militär meddelar att sonen Jonathan har omkommit i tjänsten, och i klaustrofobiska bilder i familjens modernistiskt designade lägenhet gestaltas hur faderns värld rasar samman. Den andra delen är ett slags absurdistisk dans vid en avsides gränskontroll där en ståtlig kamelentré bryter ledan, innan den tredje tar oss tillbaka till lägenheten i enlighet med foxtrotens rörelsemönster. I sin blott andra film visar Samuel Maoz att han har en helt unik filmisk röst.

Samuel Maoz

Regissör: Samuel Maoz

Samuel Maoz, born in Tel Aviv, Israel in 1962. In 1987 he completed his cinema studies, but it took him 20 years more to finally create his first feature film, Lebanon.
He has worn a suit only twice in his life: on his Bar-Mitzva, and when he won the Golden Lion award in Venice for Lebanon. Eight years later he wrote and directed his second film, Foxtrot.

Einstein said that coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous. Foxtrot is a dance of a man with his fate. It’s a philosophical parable trying to deconstruct this vague concept called ›fate‹ through a story about father and son. They are far from each other, but despite the distance and the total separation between them they change each other’s fate, and of course their fates. The challenge I set for myself was to deal with the gap between the things we control and those that are beyond our control. I chose to build my story as a classic Greek tragedy in which the hero creates his own punishment and fight against anyone who tries to save him. He is obviously unaware of the outcome that his action will bring about.
