they don't make nostalgia like they used to...
4 April 2000 | by (jerusalem, israel) – See all my reviews

as an israeli and a "film buff" i anticipated this film who was supposed to elevate the israeli film industry which has officialy turned into a donation industry producing snutty movies that no one actually watch. the basic plot - tzomet volkan tells the tale of a group of mid 20's kriot residents who are trying to form a rock band, unfortunately only its talented singer - shelly ( the - not very convincing, oren shabo) gets an offer to perform in an israerli folk song festival, where the fame and money is. the rest of the group consists of a left wing journalist who wants to be heard, a soccer player who is a violent and a "control freak", 'kahana' the jim carrie of the bunch, among others

now, the movie isn't pretentious, it's made by one of the most prominent directors on israel, eran riklis, and it deals with the israeli society in one of its more controversial and interesting era: the one between the six day war that contributed to the israeli collective ego and the october (yom-kipur) war that dempolished it alltogether.

yet still, i found my self wondering how a 102 min. film feels like a four hour saga that doesn't seem to go anywhere except for the last half hour where all the tension that had mounted SLOWLY finally errupts. maybe we're not as skilled in the seventh art as we'd like to believe, maybe the 300,000$ budget makes the movie pale in comparison to it's mega-budget american counterparts. or maybe i'm just not into nostalgia. 7 out of 10.- wait till it comes out on video
