Michael and Dafna experience gut-wrenching grief when army officials show up at their home to announce the death of their son Jonathan. Michael becomes increasingly frustrated by overzealous mourning relatives and well-meaning army bureaucrats. While his sedated wife rests, Michael spirals into a whirlwind of anger only to experience one of life’s unfathomable twists – a twist that can only be rivaled by the surreal military experiences of his son.

"[A] bruisingly powerful movie..."
- Justin Chang, NPR
"Bold modernist cinema at its most harrowing."
- Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
"Foxtrot is a bold and imaginative portrait of the confines of family. "
- John Bleasdale, CineVue
"It’s a film that can swing between absurdist humor and brutal gut-punch sadness in a way that’s rare and, at times, truly profound. "
- Oliver Lyttelton, The Playlist
"Though it is all about mourning and loss, Maoz’ script reaches way beyond, unveiling in each one of his leading characters deep layers of past guilt that might have never been revealed in normal circumstances. "
- Dan Fainaru, Screen International
"It is a formally gorgeous piece of work, the kind of film that exudes confidence in structure and tone, and it contains some of the most striking, memorable imagery of the year. Don’t miss this one. "
- Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
"An intricate, dazzling cinematic dance, Foxtrot goes both deeper in and further out than standard-issue cinema. It's profound and moving and wild and crazy at the same time, simultaneously telling a specific story and offering an emotional snapshot of a country whose very soul seems to be at risk. "
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"Brilliantly constructed with a visual audacity that serves the subject rather than the other way around, this is award-winning filmmaking on a fearless level. "
- Jay Weissberg, Variety
