NOA at 17 (Noa Bat 17) 1982 DVD-Israeli Movie
An ideological battle takes place when the Kibbutz Movement must decided whether to follow Stalinist Russia or the Western Empires.
Set in Israel 1951, Noa is a member of a youth movement who fights for her individuality, her right to doubt and question all beliefs. An ideological battle takes place when the Kibbutz Movement must decided whether to follow Stalinist Russia or the Western empires. The debate splits families and the kibbutz, and Noa's group of friends. She is not a person of compromise and fights her way independently through a world of shattered values.
'This is one of the few really good Israeli movies. It doesn't try to be a big movie, nor does it try to turn smallness into an advantage by going pretentiously arty. It retells a modest bit of local history, from a vantage point close enough to be knowing but distant enough to be unselfconscious. It makes us care about the characters, each capable of so much more than life has allowed them. There should be more movies like this one.'
