Excellent! This is a beautiful way to experience the 'spirit' of' Israel,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: VISIONS OF ISRAEL (DVD)
I've been buying all kinds of books and movies about Israel to prepare myself for an upcoming first-time visit there. I hesitated to buy this one because I thought it would be difficult to see the 'real' Israel if all the footage is from the view of a helicoptor. I didn't want just a fly-over. After reading the previous reviews I did buy it, and I'm so glad I did!
Visions of Israel managed to provide an enormous range of the country and people by air and on the ground. It covered more than I would have thought possible. I was able to get a better understanding of where sites are located related to other sites.
The bottom line is this. I 'know' Israel better after having watched Visions of Israel.
After enjoying this one, I bought Visions of New York City. I am scheduled to travel through there very briefly on my way to Israel. I want to be familiar enough with what is there so I'll be able to know exactly what I want to see during my time there.
UPDATE: I thought I had lost my copy of this DVD and I enjoyed it so much that I was planning on buying another one. However, I found it and watched it again last night, enjoying it even more than before, 'pausing' it a number of times to enjoy parts of it when I just wanted more time to enjoy it. Excellent job, Visions!
