Storyline

A slice of life - day after day - in Haifa, where Moshe and Didi's marriage is on the rocks, affairs are casual, and Moshe's angst about health, his parents, sex, communication, and business are pervasive and existential. Moshe's mother is Jewish, his father an Arab; his father may or may not sell ancestral land; his wife and mistress have lovers, one is a close friend; much of Moshe's surroundings seem under construction or in renovation. A cousin watches a security monitor without comment. Is there allegory in this portrait of an anxious Israeli approaching middle age? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not a very good movie
9 September 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Like the first commenter said, it was a bunch of vignettes -- some related, some not -- which were mostly boring. Some naked and/or sex scenes spiced it up.

Not sure why some highly-acclaimed actors would participate in it, except to get a pay-check during a lull in their careers. Seemed odd that most of the movie characters had same first name as the actors' first name.

It wasn't clear to me that it was about Jews and Arabs, perhaps mostly Arabs, until near the end. I didn't recognize anything as being Haifa or any other specific place -- mainly scenes of semi-squalor or ongoing construction -- despite my one trip to Israel including Haifa about seven years ago.
