operation: 'grandma' objective: bring grandma Haia (direct translation: alive) to burial on time
1 April 2005 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

First of all I would recommend everyone in the holly land to see this movie. It deserves the statue of cult more than most cult movies. With regards to those of you who aren't familiar with Israeli mentality, 'Mivtza Savta' wouldn't mean much to you.

The story is about three brothers who's grandma dies in the most uncomfortable moment. Grandma must be buried under the time constrains. The older brother 'Krembo', an army commander who returns to the kibbutz, takes command of the operation.

There are people who would disagree with me, but I think this is the best Israeli movie ever made (yes even better than Eskimo Limon).
