Every day life
25 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is a good representation of everyday life and everyday occurrences. It does not try to shock you or excite you it is trying to show one aspect of our life, a relationship between a son and his dad. A strained relationship at the best. The movie has no political agenda behind it, the movie is set in Israel but can be anywhere else in the world. It has some interesting visual aspects that will entertain you and some plot twists but not enough. The dialog is somewhat boring and does not create any excitement for the movie itself, the dialog is similar to everyday home dialog. It almost feels sometimes that this is montage of a reality show put together. Over all the movie is slow to start and slow going it is better over a cup of warm tea and i think should be shortened to keep the audience.
