Storyline

A group of close friends celebrate the bittersweet changes coming to their lives during the summer of their high-school graduation: adult responsibilities, adult romance -- and the soberingly adult fact that some of their number are being drafted into the Israeli army. This has very much the feel of a high-school beach-party movie -- with music, and in Hebrew -- until a sudden and disturbingly realistic reminder of their own mortality finally slashes through the kids' cheerful, close-knit obliviousness. Written by Susannah R Mandel

the best Israelis movie
11 January 2007 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

the movie introduce in a beautiful way a bunch of young kids in their last summer before going into the army in a days of the war of attrition. the movie is a mix of joy and sadness, childhood and maturity. the dilemmas that the bunch is facing are the mirror of those times - from the small ones-to have a graduation party or not, to the big ones - to join or not to join the army and in which unit. the movie brings up a variety of characters - the non conformist whom at the end joins the army because he understands that there is no such privilege, the one that everything works for him, but still he has to make up is mind etc. great music. great great movie.
