An unexpected delight from Israel, this wonderful film is an emotional roller coaster. If you do not laugh and cry before the last frame rolls around, check if your emotions are in the `off' position. The first-time director Arik Kaplun (an Israeli from Russia) never falls into an easy trap of superficial humor and sentimental simplicity, but rises to the heights of the great film-making by developing complex character dynamics with love and deep understanding of human condition. Never shying away from the difficult and painful, the film portrays sometimes hard life of new Russian emigrants and their interactions with society. Subtly, but eloquently it shows the special bond that ties Israel together as a country, despite all the apparent confusion and bickering of ordinary life. A life affirming gem!
