Storyline

Through the streets of Jerusalem two teenagers' stories will unite to tell the summer adventure of their lives. Tamar is an amazingly talented but very quiet and insecure girl, who leaves behind her home and all she knows, changing herself unrecognizably -from her looks to her attitude- to brace herself for a dangerous mission to help a loved-one. Asaf, a clumsy, naive, and very shy boy working a boring summer job at City Hall, is given quite a mission himself : to take an uncontrollable stray dog from the pound, put it on a leash, and let it lead him back to its owners to be fined. The dog -Dinkah leads Asaf through the city to the people and places that will tell him about Dinka's owner -Tamar and her sudden disappearance. The more stories Asaf hears about this extraordinary girl, the more he falls for her, and as he and Dinkah continue their journey Asaf becomes aware that Tamar is in grave danger. Feeling he knows her, and knowing he loves her Asaf is determined to find Tamar and ... Written by Anonymous

Beautiful adaptation
14 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was worried that much would be lost in adaptation from the excellent novel. This was not the case; the characters and scenes were as i had visualised them.

The acting was good; i felt a lot of empathy towards the 2 central characters ( 3 if you include the dog ) . There was also a little bit of humour, especially in the portrayal of the 'bad' character.

The plot is not bulletproof and totally realistic but then this is partly a fantasy. Jerusalem serves as a good backdrop for though it is a big city, you are always only away from a strange wadi or uncultivated area that is required for the movie.

The flashbacks were seamlessly handled and easy to comprehend.

There was perhaps a short period in the middle of the film where i felt things were dragging on a bit. By the end though i have to confess i was slightly teary and overcome with emotion.

I hope that people not from the local market can also enjoy this film
