Quotes

[Idan explains how Alon got his nickname "Krembo"]
Idan Sagiv: When Alon was 10 years old, he stole from the kitchen all the krembos which were brought as prizes for the exhibition booths in Purim. All the kibutz suspected him, but he denied, and locked himself in his room...
Deborah: [seen in flashback, standing outside Alon's room] Alon Sagiv, I know you're there!

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.
