Varda Ben Hur
First at all, I can't believe that so many people gave this movie so high score. Some good actors,like Menashe Noy or Mushonov Junior, but many bad interpretations. The Police main role its not credible.
This movie is a waste of time. The direction is terrible; no direction. No clear message, confuse and that don't reflect the reality of Israel. The figures are not representatives and the script seems that was written by a teenager that wanna be a writer; common places, disconnection of the situations and no poetry at all. Don't find nor an aesthetic line.
After watching the very good film "footnotes", this movie is a deception.
