This one is an Israeli legend. The legendary Boaz Davidzon, Ariel Silber, Arik Einstein et alii have had and given a lot of fun with ordinary citizens caught at thoroughly planned unawares. While some of the gags are flat and obvious as they lampoon quite well explored Mediterranean mentality, the tops are world class human nature observations. Also, the feature intention on the large scale is not so obvious and plain as it might seem from the first sight. The invisible train gag could be Kusturiza, the cab hustler could be Woody Allen, the egg sorting job could be a Lynch short, the absence of special effects could be a Dogma. But it is Israel-1978 at its funniest.
