I have seen a few Israeli movies in my time and this one is one of the best. It is set in Tel Aviv in the late 20's or 30's. Two Russian immigrants in the Tel-Aviv theater world (Sasha or Pen, a writer and a famous actress, Chana) come together in with their passion for their new land and the stage. They also come together with some hot fireworks on screen. Pen is an alcoholic, womanizing married man with a temper, so when he gets a piece of Spanish news, he almost has a nervous breakdown. I don't want to give away too much of the story though.
The camera-work can make you dizzy sometimes but it's easy to adjust to. The costumes, set, props, everything looks right for this era and place. The acting is captivating and the ending just right. Take a look, it's worth it!
