The 24 years thats passed puts this movie in its right perspective.
I never belived I could be so excited from a musical. Israel of the 70's, on the crossroads between solidarity of the founding generation to the individualism of the global generation.
The army setting is the singing group and not the Comando. Between singing in army posts to the The individual intersts start poping... but the solidarity for the group still wins with a happy end and a song for peace. This naive picture is placed on the right spot, of "what went wrong" with our society, although the film doesn't deal with it directly.
The beautifull songs of our childhood, the cast that was the foundation of the Israeli culture in the '70s-'80s. Gidi Gov, Gali Atari, Dafna Armoni, Dovale, Tuvia, Heli, Susisa, Liron Nirgad (where are you?), Gilat Ankori. So young, so beautifull, so naive.
The filming location at "Ken Borohov Ihud" in Givataim of my childhood. The pre globalisation Israel we miss so much...
This is a cult movie that is being broadcasted on the TV networks in Israel on special days like independence day & Holidays. I saw it today on the election day. Where are we currently? Wasn't it so nice if in one good song could bring the peace? Wasn't it so nice if we would have back those youth friends that are so honest with us and are ready to sacrifice their career for their freinds?
