| Both sides... now and then
We haven't seen all the episodes of this drama yet, but I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a depiction of what life has been like in Israel and the Palestinian area for the past 60-70 years. I was happy to find that both sides of the ongoing conflict are shown, and as most of us know, there really is not one side or another to blame for all the hatred and killings and destruction.

I wasn't too happy with Claire Foy's performance. She seems to have one expression and that's about it. Christian Cooke is much more appealing as a British soldier based in Israel and dealing with the hatred of the Jews towards those who were appointed to protect the area. It's no surprise he falls for a Jewish refugee who might just have links to the Irgun. And are the Irgun terrorists or freedom fighters? The answer isn't an easy one even to this day.
