Excellent work scene by scene, but not a full-length plot and not many heroes
2 August 2014 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Hebrew speakers are shockingly indifferent to correct spelling in other languages, and I can only assume that nobody from the producer on down cared about the correct spelling of "Wassermill," the name of a stadium in Beersheba. Not that it would have been a good title to promote a movie with anyway. And speaking of promotion, the poster makes the movie look like a comedy and there's not much funny about it. It starts by showing us three alienated kids, none of whom evokes a great deal of sympathy at least initially and none of whom is involved in what looks like much of a dynamic plot. Only some distance from the start does the movie hint that it's going to hang loosely on the cliché of "Can these misfits get together and make a successful team?" And only later than that is any real sympathy for some of the characters invoked. But the actors are very credible and there's lots of tension in the individual scenes. Apparently almost none of the actors had worked in a movie before, and not very many of them have worked in a movie since. In fact the director himself has not come out with another film, although his work here drew considerable praise.
