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

One of the best Israeli movies ever
12 November 2013 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

It does have its faults, not all the characters are evenly built. Some are super, complete human beings presented on the screen for us to watch others are fleeting images present on the screen only as space fillers. But for me it's the only fault of a very well constructed movie, beautifully shot, beautifully directed, superbly acted by all the leads, and if you do live in Israel and you knew Israel at the time the movie takes place and it still feels real and genuine, it's a huge compliment. On top of that one can see that the director knows what he's doing, things make cinematic sense.

In my private book, this one of my top five films made in Israel ever, though people should know that my top five list could easily include 10 films - I'm not for splitting hairs over silly little details. If a movie is good, most of the rest is insignificant, this one is really good.
