"Fauda" (Arabic for 'Chaos') depicts the two-sided story of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Doron, a commander of undercover Israeli unit, the Israeli Special Forces, operating inside Palestinian territories, and his team, are hunting down Hamas terrorist Abu-Ahmed. On the other side of the fence, the life of Abu-Ahmed and his family, who has thus far murdered 143 Israelis, will never accept the State of Israel, and will continue Jihad for as long as it takes.
Disclaimer: I am a Muslim from LA in the entertainment buisiness who supports peace in Palestine and have had several visits with my familty to Israel and the West bank. But politics aside. I am writing this review for Fauda's artistic achievements which by far is underrated.
It is indeed very authentic portrayal. The characters all are touching and moving - they can make you angry and they can make you cry. The actors... all from Walid to Nidal (2nd season) are brilliant! They all deliver performances which do not have the typical Hollywood crappy overacting with dead characters. They are deicated and sincere to their craft and portrayal of their respective characters.
In this series it is not just the actors or the story that carries the brilliant drama but everything from the lighting, sound, the directing, etc. All give it their best to make this a success. No wonder it is a hit in 200 countries around the word. Yes this should be an Emmy winning series!
