We LOVE this movie

My husband and I viewed this movie prior to visiting Jerusalem in March 2014. We loved this movie, and are going to show it for our annual family Christmas party. We are taking all of our children and grandchildren to Jerusalem in December. This will give everyone a chance to view the culture before we go. A must see!

Jerusalem 3D is a gem

Jerusalem succeeds in two major ways - firstly, it manages to present the religious heritage of the city with incredible sensitivity and respect. It could have taken the faux-moral high ground of concluding that religion, and not land, is the cause of all war - and thus saved face. Instead, it considers its audience and gives screen time to the three great religions fairly and equally, not taking any one side. It is able to connect the three to a common ancestry through the clever and subtle marriage of archaeological digs and visual effects.

Its second success is in capturing the sounds, sights and smells of the ancient city with startling realism. None of the thousands of people featured in its majestic shots appear to be looking at the camera, yet are too real to be extras. You feel the experience of being there in person, peering into ancient rituals and customs from a perspective few get to see.

As a viewer, you are left not with a shallow materialistic mantra of "can't we all get along?", but of a sense of curiosity and wonder, and a desire to explore and research what the film describes as the "heart of the world".

Interesting documentary

I had a nice time watching Jerusalem, the aerial shots of Palestine and Jerusalem gives an artistic and beautiful look on the country and makes you really want to see this piece of heaven.

The film starts in introducing the three major religions in the country starting with the oldest (the Jewish) and ending with the newest (islam), and each religion is introduced by a teenage girl from each religion and culture.

To be honest as a Muslim i learned a couple of things about how other religions see the holy city, i cannot verify nor deny the accuracy of Jewish and Christian information presented in the film, I can say that Islamic fact was mostly true but the film was short and the Islamic (and Christian) side of the city was really shallow presented, i liked how it talked about the month of Ramadan and "the dome of the rock" but it didn't mention the "far mosque" to the side of "the dome of the rock" which is important as well in our religion. I saw a familiar culture And faces looking like us in the Muslim side of the city making me want to visit the city even more.

The film also tackles an important issue in the culture of the city at the end which is getting to know other religion people and stating that we have a lot in common, of course what is preventing such blend is the political conflict happening in the city and the country in general, i loved seeing the city without Israelis police and checkpoints between every two checkpoints in the city which we see in news.

I would like to state my opinion in the Palestinian - Israeli conflict, as the film states the Jews return to the city making {aliaa': going to a higher place} and searching for the lost temple which was destroyed, well, we have no problem of Jews coming to Palestine, but to problem starts when Britain gave the country to Israel and they killed and removed the native citizens out of their homes, some died in 1948,1967 and other wars, and many emigrated to Jordan with a strong will in their hearts to return to their land, i hope we find a solution where Palestinians return to their homes, lands are returned, and digging and attempts to destroy our mosques are stopped, then we can have a peaceful blend of cultures that really suites the holy city.
