Trivia

The movie was made as a final film project for the film studies MA at the Tel Aviv University. However, since those projects are not supposed to be full-length features, only the first 30 pages of the script were submitted for approval by the university. After receiving the approval, Lerner went on to make a full feature with no additional support from the university. See more »

Drug dealer Anat Klausner encounters bomb explosion outside a night club
18 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

"Frozen Days" (2005) or "Yamim Kfuim" is a neo-noir made in Israel with the action occurring in Israel in Tel Aviv I think it is, but in a large city in any event that is not very hospitable and has a formidable and somewhat scary nighttime urban environment, clean but still forbidding and cold. The use of high rises at night creates this environment, but so does bureaucratic indifference and routine. So do locks, keys and condominium neighbors. So do empty hospital corridors.

The film is in black and white with one color scene. Anat Klausner does fine and gripping work throughout, playing a drug dealer who is at the wrong place at the wrong time when a terrorist bomb goes off outside a night club. Her part dominates the film. Critic John Grant didn't mention this noir in his book, but it is definitely in that category.

The story gives the feeling that we are eavesdropping on the secret and private life that this young woman lives. We are subjectively with her but also observing her. Her state of mind is the basic foundation of the film. Neo-noirs quite often explore states of mind. It's best to watch this while knowing as little as possible about the story. All I can say is that it is directed carefully, with the story being developed suspensefully and gathering us into the trials of its main character. At the same time, it is revealing about the Israeli society that she's a part of. It's not a flattering portrait of that society.
