Fifth about The Seventh


TsiliTsili: Amos Gitai’s film not so much tells a story, but presents the viewer with a situation (which falls into the dangerous “important” sort) and lets it play; there’s very little context (what there is comes from the sound design) and sense of the characters. Gitai chose to, for the most part, let the film unfurl in lengthy takes with a static camera; however, neither the frames are visually interesting nor the actions portrayed very engaging (or elucidating). The pace, therefore, feels like a slog.
