A decaying world of one poor lifeguard. Genius masterwork.
17 April 2000 | by (Tel Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

This film is much more than just a beach movie. Gute (Uri Zohar) is an aging lifeguard, responsible for the Tel Aviv beach. With another few excentric characters, he lives his life with no goal or meaning. Pretty soon, after he'll get slapped frm his superior, be rejected by a beach hussy, and will be ridiculed by a couple of teenagers and a beloved whore, he'll understand that the world is moving on, with or without him. Director/actor/writer Uri Zohar gives the viewer a piece of life, fragile and realistic. Though in Israel this movie was successful as a people comedy, it is much more than that. It is a brilliant masterpiece by one of Israel's best directors. Try and locate this film everywhere.
