Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
The local public liked this one because it's a local movie par excellence, Israeli-style humor on the streets of Israel. But to do a candid-camera movie right, I guess, takes a bigger budget. For lack of unlimited opportunity to film until wonderful things happened spontaneously, Barkan finds himself depending too much on the antics of the performers rather than on the behavior of the unaware man on the street... and for that matter, in Yuda Barkan's films, how candidly the man on the street is really acting is always open to question.
