Blazingly funny, pessimistic ending
18 March 2004 | by (Bucks County PA) – See all my reviews

Very freudian and critical of religion is the undertone I got from this movie. The fact that the jewish mentality or Israeli mentality was the celebration of life. Yet we see the Israelis doing things completely unreligious, smoking, felating, teen sex, sex with a sales girl in a drugstore asile, ironically talking about death and life, and our main character refusing to talk about it. THe very end of the movie, we have the two burial helpers saying, "theres no plan, you live and thats it." My guess is that this film had some controversy when it was released, its more critical of Jewish spiritual beleifs, and honest about the way humans and Jews look at death and afterlife. In one scene, he wants to jump into an ambulance telling them he only has a half hour to live. THe ambulance people shove him out telling him that with a half hour he can "call God."
