bad, but good
11 December 2001 | by (Tel aviv Israel) – See all my reviews

For most film critics this film was considered bad, but for viewers this film is really great. i was 5 years old when i first saw this movie, and i fell in love with it. it has everything, comedy, drama, action. it's one of the best israeli films ever, no doubt about it. if u can find this film, i recommend it highly. you'll love it(if you're not a film critic..)
