just perfect and just waiting for a Hollywood re-make
2 June 2003 | by (haifa) – See all my reviews

Itzik Finkelstein is a nobody. He knows there is no reason for his loser life and decides to take revenge on the people who got him where he is. Aided by a devilish monk he sets out to take out his loved ones, his friends and other life-destroyers who are to blame. Itzik Finkelstein is doing what everybody always wants - absolute payback for their dead life.

This flawless comedy is sarcastic, touching, thought-provoking and very funny. Moshe Ivgi shows exactly why he rules the Israeli cinema for the last twenty years. Everybody else is just perfect. This one is a must.
