Quotes

[Idan and Benny came to the morgue to take grandma Haya's body for the burial, but the manager refuses to let them transport the body in their car]
Benishty Manager: There are two options - either Chevra Kadisha or private ambulance. That's it.
Benny Sagiv: Wait a minute, doctor, you don't understand.

A new age Israeli CULT movie
13 February 2005 | by (Kfar-Saba, Israel) – See all my reviews

I think I saw this movie around 10 times only in my 3 years in the army.

Although this movie was made for cable TV, it was a great success in Israel.

Almost every school, every IDF base will have the film in their collection.

I don't know how someone who doesn't live in Israel can get the humor of this movie, but it's worth the 50 minutes trying...

& if you don't get the humor, just come live here for a couple of years.. that should do the job. :-)

Ronen Rothfarb, ISRAEL.
