the Yom Kippur War in the back-
ground.
Some critics also claim that
Mr. Lanzmann interviewed most-
ly high-ranking officers and
young male soldiers serving in
elite armored and air force units,
giving too small a role to women
and reservists.

Vets recall the fear
of being wounded
and losing friends.

Yet on the whole, critics agree,
Mr. Lanzmann is successful in
sympathetically revealing the hu-
man side of the IDF to a wide au-
dience. He gives both the critics
and the patriots a chance to make
their case, and leaves viewers
with a better understanding of
the subject.
Plans have not been finalized
as to when and how Tsahal will
be marketed in the United States.
There's always the possibility it
could be shown in theaters, as
was Shoah. But it's more likely
— specifically because of Tsahal's
length — that most Americans
will have to rent the film in a
video store or see it in an Israeli
film festival.

Writer Holds Two Workshops

Harvey Ovshinsky, award win-
ning writer, producer-director will
teach creative writing workshops
at the Grosse Pointe Academy on
April 22 and 23 and the Com-

time Mr. Ovshinsky has offered
creative writing classes for adults.
The workshop combines lec-
tures with group discussion, writ-
ing exercises and practices, poetry
writing and multiple doses of Mr.
Ovshinsky's own self -motivating
messages, "Write-A-Mins."
The workshop is open to adults
and high school students and no
previous writing experience is re-
quired.
There is an enrollment fee.
Students should bring their own
pens, paper and lunch.

to 3 p.m. on Saturday and from
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April
22 and 23. The workshop will
take place in the Grosse Pointe
Academy library, just off the
front entrance of the school,
which is located at 171 Lake
Shore Road, Grosse Pointe
Farms. To register, please call
Kelly Hackathorn at the Acad-
emy, (313) 886-1221.
The Community House will
host the workshop on Saturday,
April 29, and Sunday, April 30,
from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The
Community House is located at

mann's solicitation of these
views, whether expressed by a
settler in the territories or by an
Israeli lawyer representing
Palestinians accused of acts of
terrorism, often helps the view-
er in understanding what is at
stake in the current peace nego-
tiations. Thus, although it was
shot three years ago, the film an-
ticipates many of the consuming
questions today.
Like Shoah, which because of
its length was usually shown in
two parts, Tsahal at times re-
quires patience. This is especial-
ly true when it comes to
language.
As with any film using contin-
uous translation and subtitles,
there are moments in Tsahal
when the nuances of the speaker
are lost. Most of those inter-
viewed respond in stilted English,
while others speak in Hebrew or
French but then have a woman's
"voice-over."
It also is hard not to be dis-
tracted by Mr. Lanzmann's own
heavily accented English, as with
his question to a young tank corps
member, "Zis is your tonk?"
Further confusing is the jux-
taposition of shots showing young
recruits during training exercis-
es, with veterans' narratives of
