The first feature to be filmed and processed entirely in Israel, HILL 24 DOESN'T ANSWER depicts the 1948 war of attrition between Israelis and Arabs, with special attention to each side's attempts to gain and hold the Holy Land. This 20th-century crusade is recounted, in rather trite cinematic fashion, from the perspectives of four soldiers--an Irishman, an American, a Palestinian Jew, and a Yemenite girl--all involved in holding the title ground for the new state-to-be. Their stories are told in flashback by their corpses, which are found by a United Nations team--although the four did hold the hill--after the signing of the historic truce that fixed the boundaries of the new land. An often moving film, despite its obvious propaganda motives and cliches. (In English, Hebrew, and other languages; non-English languages subtitled.)
