Storyline

A madman escapes from the asylum in Tel-Aviv, and starts digging a canal right in the middle of one of the main streets. Due to the bureaucratic mess in the city administration, not only does nobody try to stop him, he actually receives the help of the police, the city engineer, etc. The one city clerk who finds out what is really going on is, of course, declared insane...

One of the best satires made
19 June 2004 | by (Haifa, Israel) – See all my reviews

Kishon is amazing. This is jewel in the Israeli satire against bureaucracy, way of life, historical heritage and the 60's in Israel. It is hysterically funny. A must see for every movie loving person. The story is about a madman which starts to dig a hole, and since bureaucracy and political rivals kick in, they take the charge for digging s hole in the most busiest street in Tel Aviv. Of course after everyone does not take the blame for it, after creating a venetian tunnel of of the street, everyone take responsibility for their own "life achievement" Thank you, Kishon, for making this movie!
