Here lie our bodies.

The third episode of "Lock Hour" (here 11) opens as soon as Caspi, the remaining commander of the group of unarmed tankers, fires at IDF soldiers who mistakenly thought of the enemy. The circular episode, which ends in the exact same arena, takes place slowly The protagonists of the series, how serious and terrible everything is.



Accordingly, not many things happen. The protagonist of the episode is the war. In each focus of the series the protagonists will encounter death or danger to life, closer than they expect. This is an effect of transition: misunderstanding, denial and shock, as progress fast and fierce, to the internalization of survival mode.



among the paratroopers were shot like ducks in what looked like a nervous breakdown going through financial, seems survived only one: Jonathan (Lee Byrne), who does not speak at all and is unresponsive to the soldiers, absolutely nothing. they go for a trip Later in the chapter we will discover what is behind the silent paratrooper, and why his silence may have a cruel meaning.

"Lock Hour" is invested and tense, but collapses under its pretensions

Trying to calm the spirits.

The continuation of the force's journey is marked by the growing confrontation between Marco and Caspi, with Alush trying in vain to calm the spirits.

Marco, who has little prior trust in the command, is the one who shouts that the king is naked: Caspi is unfit to command, and there is no logic in his actions.

In front of him, Caspi stands with loose nerves and without authority but with rage and a wish for death, and insists on going into the sector with two tanks and no firepower, even though it is made clear to him again and again that this is a hopeless act.



It is clear to Marco that Caspi is leading his soldiers on a suicide mission, the latter reasoning that his kibbutz is not far from the sector.

"So we call here the poet Rachel when you do here on her part 2?", Marco slaps him, putting his narrative to ridicule.

"I'm making sure you do your job," Caspi slams back, with all he has as ammunition is his position in the chain of command.



The confrontation between the two floods a value question.

Caspi, the commander who decides to remain on the battlefield without ammunition and fight to the bitter end for the kibbutz, could in other, traditional narratives, be considered a martyr hero.

Here he is portrayed as a gluttonous idiot with a death wish and without judgment.

And what about Marco - is he the only one who understands what's going on, or a coward who evades his duty as a soldier?

Who is the military hero - the one who falls on his sword, or the one who takes care of bringing his soldiers home safely?

Adjacent to Yoav.

Avinoam (Photo: Vered Adir, here 11)

A similar question accompanies the process that the heroes of another arena of the series go through - the Hermon outpost.

There, in the double opening episode, a similar confrontation took place: the agitated Avinoam demanding to escape, and the commander Yoav insisting that nothing be abandoned and that no Syrian pass through the outpost's doors.

However, in this chapter the decision falls in favor of Avinoam.



At the Hermon outpost, most of the occurrence is within the caves.

Shots and chaos in the dark, without too many dialogues.

Yoav still calls the intelligence soldiers "weird," Fulfilled, but from now on he and Avinoam, who is a little less preoccupied with a storm of hysteria, are close.



Indeed, the road invites them to a glimpse into the fate of another group of soldiers, including Avinoam's friends in the listening unit, including the angry commander who spoke to him bluntly at the beginning of the saga.

He will no longer be able to apologize to Avinoam for making a mistake in his assessments: we predict he was shot to death after being captured.

No one else will either.



A side note: "Lock Hour" excels at reconstructions of battlefields, but just as its gameplay and dialogues are realized at an awfully high volume - it also graphically displays death images, in a way that is uncomfortable.

War is a terrible thing.

There is no aesthetic death.

And yet one must wonder about the attempt to shock: is it really necessary?

Does every artistic expression have to be blunt to convey a point?

Shrinking pathos .. close to Yoav.

On another horizon, life still looks completely different.

Lt. Gen. Daphne - who still has very little role - tries to catch rides back to headquarters in volume, until Manny Ben Dror's vehicle and additional panther Malachi agree to pick her up. So we discover two things: First: Ben Dror is a well-known and eager writer and media man; And the other: he is a flirtatious and rude accuser, and a rather repulsive character in general.



While traveling, these different people get to know each other's story, with a lot of pathos and arrogance that will shrink with painful speed. The cheerful and hippie atmosphere is " In the background) changes in one scene Military police prevent the vehicle from advancing to the combat zone, despite the excuses of the three. In completely different sensations, just before Malachi accelerates, by the way, the tape recorder in the car starts playing Beehive's "Yo-Ya". This is unlikely: the album "Foggy Stories" was only released in November 1973, and "Yo-Ya" was not released as a broadcast record before.



This scene also has an ideological, rather conservative message: so far you can be subversive, radical, critical of the state and the war as much as

You will - but beyond the point of reference, you are all soldiers in the war, and any other conversation is irrelevant.

If during the trip Malachi-deputy-panther-senior could talk about social justice, when he encounters following his tank he clarifies: "I am not interested in turning the country, I am only interested in my guys", which drags the gang away from its original plans to Passed the battlefield.

The encounter with the sights of destruction - including his burnt friend Tirosh (see note on graphic death images) - shakes deeply those who until now were a happy man, who manages in any situation and is confident in himself.

cry.

The case of Manny Ben-Dror is no different. During the trip, he criticizes the Israeli political leadership and militarism. On a more personal level, he rudely recounts how he has nothing to do with the person he is looking for, as if he does not care about his fate at all. But a shaky encounter with the horrors of war will also make him sound different, and call in horror to his missing son. In this episode he will no longer talk about politics.



By the way, a second note: in the car on the way and also in front of the burnt tank, the three of them play with a kind of camera that films the events, but we do not see what is happening from the old camera. This is a huge "lock-in hour" miss to challenge the tool of representation: presenting such "documentation," whether fabricated or even more so if it is real documentation, could serve as an artistic, poetic, and self-conscious tool that bridges the gap between historical story and work on television. , And talks about the meaning of documentation and processing. The power of archival footage in the opening and closing of chapters, which in turn give a reminder that there are real people behind the stories, is just an example of the effect that could have been achieved through such use.



Back to the battlefield. After the burned tank, the vehicle continues to the point where the episode began, and next to it the bodies of the soldiers who were shot from Caspi's weapon. Maybe only here does the token really fall. Among the names of the bodies - these are not real names of the war victims, for those who are wondering - Dafna also reads a name she found on Chimidan, without a body next to him - this is Yonatan Ben Dror, who as we immediately understand is the same shocked soldier collected by the tankers, and he too Son of our acquaintance Manny Ben Dror. Whoever said earlier without any hesitation that he was not interested in being present in his son's life, falls apart near a ruined structure nearby, a symbol of one whose world has been destroyed. As long as Jonathan is silent, it will take a long time for the two to find each other, if at all.



This stage is no longer filmed on the old camera. Either way, right after that the real pictures from 1973 come up, giving a real face to an outcry that has just been heard.
