Trivia

A sequel was in the first stages of scripting, again by Assi Dayan, but was canceled due to the death of Yisrael Poliakov, who played Sergio, in October 2007. The plot supposedly dealt with the lives of the three main characters 30 years after the original events took place. However, a documentary about the movie is planned instead. See more »

A good film, but...
12 May 2005 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

The story of a dysfunctional Israeli reservists' unit in the Sinai prior to the 1980 peace deal with Egypt.

Gingi, the unit's sergeant and the only guy around with his head screwed on, sort to speak, desperately tries to keep everything going smoothly, when the regional Colonel is due for a visit.

The plot thickens, when one of the reservists under his command (Victor), ends up in the hands of an equally dysfunctional Egyptian border unit.

While the film is a funny, light-hearted watch, the humour, unfortunately, doesn't translate all that well, and unless you're a native Hebrew speaker, you will miss a few of the important points, that have made it such a cult film in Israel.

All in all, definitely worth a watch!
