Sinai Commandos: The Story of the Six-Day War, director Raphael Nussbaum’s second action film shot in Israel, shares a great many parallels with its 1960 predecessor, Burning Sands (aka Brennender Sand): from the bold colours and desert setting, to the fearless group of Israeli soldiers, and the woman joining their ranks. Made in the immediate aftermath of the Six-Day War, the film is set in wartime and follows the story of a group of soldiers in an elite commando unit, led by Captain Uri Littman (Robert Fuller), who are sent beyond enemy lines to the Sharm El-Sheikh area where they are to decommission a Soviet radar station.
Singer Ran Eliran performs the film’s theme song, Sharm El-Sheikh, with which the film opens and ends.
