      Critic Reviews for Alila

      Audience Reviews for Alila

      • May 07, 2005

        [font=Century Gothic][color=royalblue]"Alila" is an Israeli movie set in an apartment building. It features various denizens while focusing on a divorced builder and his son who has gone AWOL from the army and a very anonymous affair. Director Amos Gitai uses exquisite tracking shots and jump cuts to tell his story but Michael Haneke fell flat on his face doing pretty much the same thing with "Code Unknown" in 2001. "Alila" is a slight improvement.(Both "Alila" and "Code Unknown" make mention of illegal immigration.) What this technique allows for is glimpses into the lives of its characters but because that is all we get, there is never a sense that we ever get know any of them, and several remain complete mysteries. There is something here about how neighbors interact with each other but not much. [/color][/font]
