bittersweet and timeless
14 March 2013 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

It's the old story of the holdouts against the developers a la Milagro Beanfield, *bnót Braun*, and a million other stories. This time it's played out on a Galilee kibbutz that unbeknownst to a dozen or so of its founders, who reside on the premises in a special seniors' complex, the mired-in-debt community has gone into receivership.

The oldsters awaken one morning to an empty (save a cow and one Chinese laborer) kibbutz and after being offered millions by a corrupt tycoon and refusing his offer, hunker down to recreate their society on their own terms.

Simply told and ably acted, the characters draw us into their world, their decades-old unsettled scores, and their up-to-now unconfessed romances. It's a sweet, sad, timeless tale with a kibbutz twist yet no surprises. Recommended.
