Press

  • "This rare look at femininity in uniform explores the fine line between admiration and infatuation, between power and desire, focusing on the moment when admiration transforms into homo-erotic love."
    Asafa Peled
  • "A marvelous documentary... Heavy artillery of irony and tenderness."
    Mariana Benenson
  • "An intimate film, fascinating in its honesty, which raises difficult questions about the role of women within the patriarchal-hierarchical army system … This sensitive documentary portrays the daily routines of this group of lost girls playing their part in the "game of war"…A penetrating and disturbing film."
    Rom Levkovich
