Storyline

Chen, a young kid, is battling a cultural conflict between his Russian born mother and Israeli father. She is cultured and used to the finer things in life, including theater and fine dining. He is gruff on the outside but sweet on the inside - a Sabra; and looking to make his young son a man rather than the wimp his mother is raising. One day, Chen stumbles upon a ballroom dance class for young people and sees Natalie, a stunning Russian young girl he falls in love with immediately. His interest in Natalie leads him to taking ballroom dancing and to ultimately bridging the cultural divide of his own family - through the Cha Cha and the Tango. The teachers are a pair of former Russian world champions who never quite fulfilled their potential, but find themselves battling their demons through the instructions of the kids.

Excellent
12 February 2007 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Great film! The best film I seen this year. I saw it at Moscow International Film Festival. It's full of love, excitement, life's and cultural problems that we solve, and beautiful admirable dances. Can't watch it without tears of pleasure! When I was watching it, I didn't want it to finish, I wanted that the film lasts all my life :) What is special, the mix of the languages (Hebrew and Russian), that shows the mix of cultures ("Russian and Israeli is like two parallel lines, that never cross"). Great acting. I think it was difficult to film lots of kids in the film. There's not so much film's that I want to watch one or more time, that's one of them
