Avi Nesher returns with a new film !
5 March 2005 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Turn Left At The End Of The World is a great film! Avi Nesher who is a cult israeli film director returns! Left Turn At The End Of The World deals with the problems of newcomers who have been sent to the a small town just at the end of the world. As much as it sounds dreadful and hopeless, this film is actually very funny and entertaining! As an Israeli man, I can certainly say that nothing new has been made by Avi Nesher, it's the same old formula of typical israeli racism combined with sex lol. In addition, I can even say that this film is a developed version of Eskimo Lemon also known as Lemon Popsicles abroad. Bottom line : Watch this film if you would like to have an hour and a half of pure entertaining.
