A rare Israeli science fiction gem by a misunderstood genius
10 December 2006 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

David Avidan was an Israeli poet, writer, painter and director who was infatuated with the future. In this movie "Sheder me-Haatid" - "a message from the future" Avidan tells the story of FM (Future Man), a messenger who comes from the future year 3005 to future year 1985 (the film was shot in 1981), with the goal of convincing humanity not to postpone WW3 but rather to start it immediately. The film has a very low-budget feeling to it, with this kind of ridiculous sci-fi shiny clothes and costumes. If you like such sci-fi mannerisms, this film is for you. However, the film also contains other very interesting ideas - interesting critique on human culture, ideas on telepathy, time travel and an intriguing sci-fi plot. This is film is one of its kind, as not a lot of sci-fi films are done in Israel (in fact i can't think of any other). However, it is well worth watching not only for that reason, but because it is a interesting inspired and inspiring piece of sci-fi fiction. 9/10
