Product Description

On the streets of New York City in 1946, Jewish-American Bobby Goldman (JJ Feild) becomes best friends with Arab-Muslim Saïd Chahine (Saïd Taghmaoui). But when British-controlled Palestine erupts in war, these two intelligent and compassionate men will find themselves fighting on opposite sides of the historic battle for Jerusalem – the divided holy land whose name literally translates to ‘City Of Peace’. Oscar® nominee Tom Conti (REUBEN, REUBEN) co-stars in this epic saga of conflict, courage, and the fiery dawn of the state of Israel, featuring unforgettable performances by Academy Award® nominee Ian Holm (CHARIOTS OF FIRE) as David Ben-Gurion and Tovah Feldshuh (HOLOCAUST) as Golda Meir.

I could hardly finish watching the movie.

I thought that while the story was very compelling, the acting was pretty average at best, and awkward at times. It seemed more like a cheap, made for TV movie. I really expected to like it more than I did but just didn't find it very engaging.

I agree with Jack Wasson below - it's too bad the film-makers used the title of the truly excellent Collins-LaPierre book because this movie is just sub-par. The sound editor doesn't seem to understand how to make words clear so in the many scenes where groups of people are gathered what they are saying is almost incomprehensible. The director has no idea how to move the movie along because there is no sense of pace. In fact, it is clunky, awkward and amateurish.

Glad that I borrowed this from the library at no cost. Not worth watching.

I know of no other book ever written which so accurately covers this most significant subject, so completely, without resorting to fiction. The authors compiled dozens, if not hundreds, of firsthand accounts of the actual players on both sides of this historic struggle. This exceeds the work of "Exodus" in that NO fiction is used. As we all know, Truth is Stranger, and when it comes to this subject, that is an understatement. The authors did an absolutely historic job. The book limits its scope to the single period between the time of the UN vote to end the mandate, Nov. 1947, the declaration of the Modern Jewish State, and the initial war of Independence which determined its survival, up until the first UN truce. This book should be required reading by every person personally touched by the Middle East Conflict. That is, just about everyone. I only wish I had known a lot sooner this books existence. I would have read it years ago. P.S. Regarding the film that was done; there is no connection to the book other than the fictional movie was based upon the same period of time. Since the film was totally fiction, it could have easily been concocted without tainting the fantastic work of the two authors.

The beauty of the book was it's readability and detail, and, without fanfare, making it obvious that there were times when 2 states could have been achieved.

The movie gives nothing of this. A fictional backcloth that wasn't in the book adds nothing to the film, except a touch of unnecessary schmaltz. Somehow the producer's turned an exciting gripping story into schlock.

Hollywood, or whoever, at their worst. Don't waste your time watching it, read the book.

It's a good movie but it doesn't really reflect the book, so I was disappointed.

First let me state that the potential of making a good movie out of the material should have been a given. However, the directing, acting and story line were terrible. I could hardly finish watching the movie. Save your money - there are much better movies out there covering Israel.

This film is a well-casted adaptation of the novel of the same name. Although not a thorough as the novel, it nevertheless depicts that dangerous time at the end of the British rule of Palestine and the beginning of the Jewish State of Israel through the eyes of a Palestinian and an American Jew. There are various levels of each society that we meet before the division becomes too deep.

JJ Feild stands out in a fine cast as the American Jew returning home from WWII. I recommend reading the novel and viewing this film. Several books on the subject would be "Exodus" by Leon Uris and The Lemon Tree (which tells both stories will equality and is true.).

Format: DVD
The DVD "O Jerusalem" was somewhat thrilling in the presentation of the drama of the diverse ethnic backgrounds being placed in the cauldron of intransigence in the midst of the evolution of modern Israel. Having also read the book of the same title, I can imagine the unsettling feelings of both sides. What was then the catastrophe of human hatred, was then after left unmended with both the characters suffering the death of loved ones. This is still sad as the unfolding episode as we see it still outworks itself far beyond numerous handshakes on the white house lawn and more people of ill will wanting to continue the hatred and violence. When will Jerusalem be more than a vision of peace and become a reality? This is the question posed.
