Storyline

Amitz Dolniker, an Israeli politician who speaks way to much has a heart attack in the middle of his speech. In the ambulance on the way to the hospital the doctor orders him to "go someplace quite, rest, and don't make speeches". His young assistant immediately suggest they go to Switzerland, however Dolniker had taken a vow not to leave Israel unnecessarily, so he comes up with a different idea - going to a remote village where they have never heard of him, so he would not be asked to make any speeches. As they arrive, it turns out that not only the villagers have never heard of Dolniker, but they have also never heard of running water, electricity, phones, and most importantly: TV, Radio, and newspapers... so its only a matter of time before Dolniker or the villagers go bananas....

Read the book!
17 July 2000 | by (Tel-Aviv, ISRAEL) – See all my reviews

This is not a bad movie, as a matter of fact its even quite good, but unlike the rest of Ephraim Kishon's films, this one was originally written as a book, and would have to say that in the process of transferring it into a movie - well - something was lost. I can't really point out what but something is missing.

Thumbs half-way - only see it if you haven't read the book
