Storyline

They were four friends in heart & soul. Blood Brothers that were that were bound together by their army experience. They were good people & decent citizens. They had love, careers, hopes, a future - but they wanted more. They wanted to commit the perfect crime. They thought that if they will plan things out completely and won't leave anything to the chance, as they learned in the army, things would go smooth. They considered everything, anticipating every step that can go wrong and planning down to the minutest of details - assuming that the outcome will be as planned. But the reality is something totally different from what optimistic people want it to be; The reality always surprises those who try to engineer it. Salt Of The Earth - At times behind common sense hides insanity. Inside the power - weakness is gazing. In the heart of the courage - fear is gnawing. Behind the friendship lies betrayal.

Seemed promising but lacked something in general
8 July 2006 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

I went to watch this film with some expectations. A wonderful and talented cast, brilliant filmmakers and a recent drought in the theaters made me believe I would come out of the theater satisfied. I didn't. Although the plot is mostly consistent, excluding several scenes where the characters tell the moral of the story in retrospect, it lays major wholes in understanding. It is difficult to explain without giving something away but it sure felt like details were missing, even minute ones like a stare or other facial expressions at the correct moment. It seemed like the actors had great freedom in interpreting the characters' knowledge and motivations. While it is not a bad thing by definition, in this case more guidance would have resulted in a much more fulfilling outcome. Furthermore, there was inconsistent usage of props and hair and make-up. Some may not notice but I get thrown off by those things. My general conclusion was that the potential of this film was not utilized to the fullest.
