Claustrophobics, beware: "Lebanon" takes place almost entirely inside a dark, cramped tank.

But war movie fanatics will definitely want to check out this Israeli film, a down and dirty look at the aftermath of warfare, seen mostly through the lens of said tank's periscope.

Taking place during the 1982 Lebanon War - and based on writer-director Samuel Maoz's experience as an Israeli soldier - the film follows four young soldiers tasked with clearing out an already-bombed town.

The mission doesn't go as easily as expected, and the movie becomes a meditation on the emotional turmoil that comes with killing and the ethical struggles involved in just trying to survive.

Don't expect much of a history lesson, though - this is a personal story rather than a political one.
