Storyline

A family of Iraqi-Israelis, each with his or her own weaknesses and determination, gathers for an Independence Day picnic. Their background stories are presented, reaching back as little as a few days or as far back as the War of Independence and the old country before that, and interlocking in ways that even they never realize.

Very Good Israeli Movie
1 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would highly recommend this movie. The story involves one family celebrating a holiday with a bbq. The plot weaves the story of the father, mother, son, and daughter, each happening at the same time, but from a different perspective. This is a finely crafted script and well done film.

My main reason for writing this review is to say how incredible the father was in the movie. After watching the DVD and seeing the behind the scenes section, they mentioned that he was not a professional actor. I don't know his name, but in my opinion, he stole the movie. the father's section is perhaps the most believable.

The only criticism I would have for the film-makers is that some background information is missing, essential to the film. I had a lot of questions of the characters, mainly: "Why are you doing this?" Other than that a very good film. The main message is that you never really know what someone is going through at any time.
