Eliezer and Uriel Shkolnik are father and son as well as rival professors in Talmudic Studies. When both men learn that Eliezer will be lauded for his work, their complicated relationship reaches a new peak.
The narrative revolves around police officer Amadeus Warnebring, tone-deaf scion of a distinguished musical family, and his attempts to track down a group of six guerilla percussionists whose anarchic public performances are terrorizing the city. The drumming set pieces correspond to an avant-garde score with four hilariously titled movements. Where the short involved the six drummers imaginatively using standard apartment furnishings as their instruments, the feature unleashes them on an unspecified city's civic and cultural institutions. Including an amusing backstory for each of the soberly dressed drummers as well as their nemesis, music-hating investigator Warnebring, the film creates a treat for the eyes and ears from the dull, repetitive sounds of everyday life.

This movie is pure joy, musically and cinematically. Just the idea of having six drummers as terrorists, using everyday objects as instruments is so brilliant it doesn't even matter how good or bad the movie is. Fortunately this movie does great at both having an original idea, great characters and beautiful cinematography. The musical numbers is of course awesome, but also the plot line involving the policeman Warnebring is brilliant. You really feel for the character, even if he starts of as the bad guy(kind of), and you also root for him sometimes, even though he tries to stop the musicians. This is an amazing movie experience that I can recommend for everyone who has a heart(cheesy,but true), and can enjoy great cinema.
