Storyline

The film takes place in Tel Aviv, much of it in a fictitious local pub called Barbie, a satirical nickname for a famous Israeli mental health institution. The pub's name hints at the characters and the events which occur in the pub and which befall its owner (Daliah), the employees and customers. The plot unfolds with a streak of violence which takes a surprising turn. Written by Amir Handzel <hand@wisdom.weizmann.ac.il>

Make Love not War
10 August 2001 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

A film that shows in a very congenial way that there are people in Israel which only want to live in "love and peace" with the arabian people and that shows how dangerous it is to want this. This film should be a must for all people talking about the crises of Israel and Palestine.
