One of the best Israeli comedies in the last 10 years.
This movie is very funny, has a healthy sense of humor, the kind I haven't seen in an Israeli movie. The plot is fluent and it keeps you watching (which I can't say about many Israeli films). I was happy to see that the movie had a happy ending unlike most films of the genre that end in tragedy. Overall, good actors, many of them are new to me (so I was pleasantly surprised), some already famous like Asi Cohen, which is very good here. The film has very funny situations regarding several aspects of Israeli life. Don't look for hidden meanings or a political agenda, it's just a fun movie (and a good one) that might be cult movie material. Enjoy (10/10).
