Waltz with Bashir

Festival de Cannes 2008 Official Selection

Above: Waltz with Bashir (official site), the haunting trailer for this highly acclaimed film by Ari Folman. Review by Wendy Ide for TimesOnline here.

Synopsis from the offical site: “One night at a bar, an old friend tells director Ari Folman about a recurring nightmare in which he is chased by 26 vicious dogs. Every night, the same number of beasts. The two men conclude that there’s a connection to their Israeli Army mission in the first Lebanon War of the early eighties. Ari is surprised that he can’t remember a thing anymore about that period of his life.”
