The Little Traitor [HaBoged HaKatan] Israel Movie DVD 2008
Based on the book by Amos Oz - Panther in the Basement - this award winning movie is a bittersweet story set in the post- WWII era Palestine. English and Hebrew language with hebrew subtitles. Available in Pal format only
Nominated for Best Costume Design by Israeli Film Academy 2008. Main selection of the Munich International Movie Festival, the Miami International Movie Festival, and AFI Dallas. Winner of the Audience's choice award in the Palm Beach International Movie Festival.
In 1947 Palestine, just a few months before Israel becomes a state. Proffy Liebowitz, a militant yet sensitive twelve year old, has grown up under British occupation and wants nothing more than for the occupying British to get out of his land. Proffy and his two friends are always plotting ways to terrorize the British until one evening, while he’s out after curfew; Proffy is seized by Sergeant Dunlop.
Instead of arresting him, Sergeant Dunlop escorts him back home and a friendship begins to develop in the following weeks. Proffy starts to consider Dunlop a father figure, as his own father is cold and remote. Dunlop, lonely and poetic, loves the spirited boy and reads the Book of Samuel, Dunlap’s favorite part of the Bible. Proffy helps Dunlap with his Hebrew while Dunlap teaches Proffy difficult English words and provides the fatherly guidance missing in Proffy’s life.
As neighborhood tensions escalate between the British and the underground Jewish rebellion, their relationship becomes increasingly complicated. While Proffy has learned a great deal from his mentor, he is also shunned by his friends for this friendship and thus called a “traitor” by his neighbors and community. The resulting trial and shock that he could have such genuine affection for his “enemy” will change Proffy’s life forever.
