Kritik aus der JERUSALEM POST von Hannah Brown, 13. AUGUST 2019 „Our Boys von HBO ist eine komplexe Erzählung von Konflikt und Verlust Our Boys erzählt die Geschichte eines angekündigten Todes, eines Akts der Rache für die Entführung und Ermordung dreier jüdischer Teenager. […] Die Serie wurde als Koproduktion zwischen HBO und Keshet International von drei der begabtesten Filmemacher und Dramatiker Israels geschaffen – Joseph Cedar, dem Regisseur der Oscar-nominierten Filme Beaufort und Footnote; Hagai Levi, einem der Macher von BeTipul, der israelischen Serie über einen Psychologen, die auf der ganzen Welt adaptiert wurde (darunter in den USA als In Treatment), und der auch die Serie The Affair geschaffen hat und Tawfik Abu Wael, dem Regisseur des Dramas Thirst, eines allegorischen Films über eine isolierte palästinensische Familie, die beim Jerusalem Film Festival den ersten Preis gewonnen hat. […] Our Boys erzählt die Geschichte eines angekündigten Todes – der Tötung von Mohammed Abu Khdeir, einem 16-jährigen palästinensischen Bewohner des Shuafat-Viertels von Jerusalem – als Rache für die Entführung und Ermordung dreier jüdischer Teenager, Naftali Fraenkel, Gil-Ad Shaer und Eyal Yifrah. Die Unruhen nach der Tötung dieser vier Jungen führten zu Ausschreitungen und letztendlich zum Abfeuern von Raketen aus dem Gazastreifen durch die Hamas und zu einer Militärmission der IDF, die in der Operation Protective Edge des Sommers von 2014 mündete. […] Die Serie versucht, ein vollständiges Portrait der Mörder von Abu Khdeir zu zeichnen, und stellt sie als mizrachische Mitglieder der ultra-orthodoxen Gemeinde dar, die nicht gut genug waren, um als Gelehrte in der Welt der Yeshivas zu glänzen, und die einen Groll gegen die aschkenasische Elite hegen – ein ähnliches Handlungsmotiv wie in Yaron Zilbermans Drama Incitement über Yigal Amir.“

Review from the JERUSALEM POST By Hannah Brown, August 13. 2019

“HBO’s Our Boys is an intricate tale of conflict and loss Our Boys tells the story of a death foretold as an act of revenge for the kidnapping and murders of three Jewish teenagers.[…] A co-production between HBO and Keshet International, it was created by three of Israel’s most talented filmmakers and dramatists – Joseph Cedar, the director of the Oscar-nominated films, Beaufort and Footnote; Hagai Levi, one of the creators of BeTipul, the Israeli series about a psychologist that has been adapted all over the world (including in the US as In Treatment) and who also made the series, The Affair; and Tawfik Abu Wael, the director of the drama, Thirst, an allegorical film about an isolated Palestinian family that won the top prize at the Jerusalem Film Festival. […] Our Boys tells the story of a death foretold – the killing of Mohammed Abu Khdeir, a 16-year-old Palestinian resident of Jerusalem’s Shuafat neighborhood – as revenge for the kidnapping and murders of three Jewish teenagers, Naftali Fraenkel, Gil-Ad Shaer and Eyal Yifrah. The unrest following the killings of these four boys sparked rioting and, eventually, rockets fired from the Gaza Strip by Hamas and an IDF military mission that led to Operation Protective Edge in the summer of 2014. The series attempts to create a full portrait of Abu Khdeir’s killers, painting them as Mizrahi members of the ultra-Orthodox community who weren’t good enough scholars to excel in the yeshiva world and who resent the Ashkenazi elite, a similar storyline to the one in Yaron Zilberman’s drama, Incitement, about Yigal Amir.”
