Romantic comedy- the hebrew (good) version
24 July 2004 | by (jerusalem, israel) – See all my reviews

When, early on in the film,the Rabbi performs a wedding ceremony, completely stoned from smoking pot (which he misled to believe was a hand rolled cigarette) it's pretty clear that this movie is not a harsh portrait of the harsh Israeli reality but an extremely light comedy, in Hebrew.

The wedding I mentioned is a major milestone in the lives of three life-long friends: Omer (Nir Levy), an ex-army officer who has doubts about his wedding, Uri (Assi Cohen in a pretty Lukewarm performance), that re-evaluates his three and a half year relationship with Taly after she dumps him due to a Bachelor party stripper "malfunction" (just like Janet Jackson had a "wardrobe malfunction" at the Superball halftime) and Zydan (Itay Barne'a) who declares early on that "a wedding is voluntarily getting into a life imprisonment just to have sex with the guard".

Zydan starts to doubt his own theories about love that has no limits or official bonds when he reconnects with a childhood girlfriend, and now a "working girl", noga (Osnat Hakim)

Zydan, consumed by emotions that don't coincide with his philosophy, wishes to rekindle the unbridled love with a Colombian girl he knew (hence the title- Colombian love) and is about to find out that heavenly theories and reality seldom co-exist.

In the meantime, Uri (the bachelor party "malfunction" protagonist) is torn between his true love and his father who's lust for pride and "awe" (no matter how artificial) drives Uri's relationship to a brink of disaster. These fragile relationship suffer another rattle when Uri's sister, Oranit, an ex-secular who found god, makes Tali her nemesis after the latter accidentally topples her card-tower made exclusively of holy kabala related figures.

This movie, as one can clearly tell, is a light comedy that combines the Israeli-style clash of cultures and generations along with the universal "love conquers all" we all saw a movie about at one point or another.

The film is aided with a great script that only towards the end, lowers the bar for Kitsch phrases and sometimes vague statements by Zydan (the storyteller). The acting is mostly good and although the turn of events is a little too dramatic to be identified with (and commented on), the movie never loses its pacing and spirit and remains what it was destined to be, a light film dish designed to make its viewers laugh instead of being baffled or Devastated or both.

Of course, as a summer-time romantic comedy, this movie leaves very little added value once its over so greatness cannot be a matching adjective for it but it still is a hilarious film and provides 90 minutes of good, old fashioned fun. A much maligned and the most underrated movie Ganre of all.

8 out of 10 in my FilmOmeter.
