New Meetup: Lebanon and Zen Palate

From: Kaaron
Sent on: Wednesday, August 18, 2010 1:36 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for The New York City Hebrew Language Meetup Group!

What: Lebanon and Zen Palate

When: Saturday, August 21,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Quad Cinema
34 W 13 St
New York, NY 10011

We'll meet at 3:00 sharp, not Israeli time, for the 3:20 showing of "Lebanon" at the Quad Cinema 34 West 13th Street, (between 5th and 6th Avenues) New York, NY 10011 |(212)[masked]

I hate bad seats. I will be in front of the theatre OR on the ticket holders' line inside the theatre OR, the minute they let me in, I will be inside the theatre itself finding myself a good seat. I will be wearing a "meetup" pin. If I'm inside the theatre I will stand up as long as feasible so you can find me. I make no promises about saving seats for latecomers.

A handful of soldiers take a claustrophobic journey into the heart of war in this drama from Israeli writer and director Samuel Maoz. It's June 1982, and Israel is launching an invasion of Lebanon. Four men assigned to take part in the first strike are put on the same tank detail -- Assi (Itay Tiran) is the commanding officer, Shmulik (Yoav Donat) is a gunner new to the outfit, Hertzel (Oshri Cohen) keeps the weapons loaded, and Yigal (Michael Moshonov) drives the machine. After being given their orders by Jamil (Zohar Strauss), the men set out toward the Lebanese border, recognizing little of what goes on outside beyond what can be seen through Yigal's tiny window; they occasionally stop to help fellow Israelis hurt in battle, but for the most part, they roll relentlessly onward, occasionally arguing amongst themselves, until they arrive at their destination, a town already bombed into rubble by the Israeli Air Force. Few of their allies remain in the city, putting the soldiers in a perilous situation when a band of Syrian resistance fighters lays siege to the tank. Levanone (aka Lebanon) was an official selection at the 2009 Venice International Film Festival. - Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

After the movie we will go out for dinner at the newly opened "Zen Palate" vegetarian restaurant.
