Darkness, cellphones and bandages
7 October 2006 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

Saw it on the Warsaw International Film Festival, having seen no Israeli films before and known nothing about what to expect. What I saw and felt reminded me much of Christopher Nolan's "Following" (both of these films are debuts) though the director denied it being any inspiration for him and put Brian De Palma and Roman Polanski's work instead. What got me most impressed was that the entire crew, including fantastic first-timer Anat Klausner, had no experience in making feature films before.

Meow is a lonely young girl who has a bad day. Her potential trip buyer turns out to be an annoying bloke who talks her into giving him an example of her stock and doesn't pay for it. The guy who recommended her to him doesn't want to let her in. Her motorbike gets stolen. And she's lonely. She finally gets to set up a date with the only man she feels like talking to - a chat-mate called Zero. The date ends up without her even seeing his face which however doesn't prevent her of kind of fall in love with him. But things go wrong. From then on the atmosphere gets more and more dense and dark. Meow takes up on Zero's life even against her own will and strange, Lynch-like things begin to happen.

The film is beautifully shot in B/W and I have to admit the only colour scene is striking, however unoriginal may the idea itself be. The cast can't be complained about, the highlight being mentioned Anat Klausner, who almost doesn't disappear from the screen. The film surely has it flaws - one can point a few plot holes or such, but those can be freely forgiven for the overall entertainment and atmosphere the film provides. A high-quality debut that deserves a ten.
