Review

A political thriller based on a true story by Amos Gitai, a renowned Israeli director. Rabin the Last Day deals with the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, the former Prime Minister of Israel which occurred on November 14, 1994. In the modern history of Israel, Rabin is synonymous with ‘peace’ as he overcame conflict. The film tracks what happened behind the scenes of his assassination which was carried out by a 25-year-old extremist. Like Gitai’s previous films that dealt with geographical tension and war, the futility of confrontation, this also makes an in-depth sketch of the political, cultural, and religious tension that surrounds Israeli society through ‘a historical figure’. The 20th anniversary of Rabin’s death paints a vivid portrait of the gradually increasing tension in Israel. What makes it stand out the most is the form. By going back and forth between newsreels and imagined reenactments, the line between reality and fiction is destroyed, possibly making this film a new style of political film that is more than just drama based on fiction.
