Rarely good Israeli movie
1 March 2004 | by (Jerusalem) – See all my reviews

The movie doesn't sell you anything but its straight-forward yet naive reality. Characters very truthful. Comical and tragical live together. Simple. Rich. Wonderful. The Holocaust theme is there and you can feel it's burning under ground. But despite all, life is in every breath of this movie. A must see.
