In Foxtrot, we encounter the Feldman family as they are told that their son, Jonathan, has been killed in military service. The mother is overwhelmed with grief; the father is overcome by rage. Foxtrot is all about an anxiety-filled family tragedy brutally narrated, but also with humor. At the same time, it addresses the topics of morality and military power, and describes how Holocaust re-materializes from generation to generation. Like the foxtrot dance, life tends to send you back to your starting point no matter what you do. The film has won a number of awards, such as the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival. It created controversy in Israel, and was, among other things, boycotted by the country's culture minister for how it exposes the country's military.
