Waltz With Bashir is nominated for 'Best Foreign Language Film' award

There's an interview with Ari Folman - with some interesting notes about the making of this fine movie.

That frame on the top is taken from a memorable scene, which I could greatly relate to when I watched it. Being a long time away from home - "trapped" in a place of conflict - one that you probably weren't personally in-charge of - you can't help yourself, but start delusioning about how much you really long for a soft, nursering, female touch; and in the midst of being in those places of war and harsh battles - you realize - that's really what you want to do now - just lay there, and rest.

I was in the Israeli army from 1999 to 2002.
