Holds attention with one eccentric after another
29 January 2012 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

The problem with typical Israeli filmmakers, someone said, is that instead of wanting to write about an individual in pursuit of a purpose, they want to write about a gang of pals. At least the gang of pals in this film is in pursuit of a purpose, even if the purpose is a cliché-- saving their beloved hangout from the bulldozer. And at least the plot doesn't try to drag us along while we're still trying to figure out which character is which. The characters are carefully introduced one after another and carefully differentiated. They are all lost and quirky souls, each with his own disappointment, who survive only because, as one of them remarks, "God loves everybody." The movie is a sort of a TIME OF YOUR LIFE, Tel Aviv style.
