Totally believable, hilarious slice of immigrant life
Saw the movie on 4/12/00 as part of DC Filmfest. One of the movie actors, Mosko Alkalai(Isaac) was in attendance. The movie is 60/40% Russian/Hebrew. The subtitles were not that great - a lot of humor was lost in translation.
It's a movie with several story lines of new russian immigrants in Israel, and their struggle to keep afloat. It's mostly funny, at times sad, and always believable. The actors performances are excellent, and cinematography is a fine blend of modern styles.
I would highly recommend this movie to anyone, but these who can relate to the experience, and with a good knowledge of colloquial Russian would get an extra kick out of it.
