A mediocre propaganda comedy
13 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie offers some insights into Israeli society and some mild chuckles, but it has not aged well. Its primary purpose appears to have been as a propaganda device for Israel. The plot is weak and conventional.

The main problem I have with the movie are its unsubtle political undertones. Arabs are largely treated as an unseen menace who want to destroy a utopian Israel that sprang from the desert and made it bloom (classic propaganda). The only two Arab characters personify racist movie stereotypes. The trader in the souk is a peeping Tom and cheat, and the Arab who gives camel rides tries to grope the main character, in a perfect example of the 'horney Arab' stereotype.
