Good ol' Assi Dayan...
3 March 2013 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

...always there to remind us of the lost, desperate souls who reside among us a la Electric Blanket Named Moshe. Dayan himself stars as the self- loathing psychologist Doctor Yoel Pomerantz. His performance is so good that we feel his desperation and fatigue, the toll of obesity, smoking, and caring for his Aspberger's son, Yoav, played sensitively by Michael haNegbi. The rest of the acting is also quite apt (I want to cite especially Einat Maayan Segal as Rachel, the gum-chewing yet good-hearted secretary at the suicide hotline) forging, together with a script that fires off cynical-yet-funny gems, a dark comedy at its finest. I used to disparage Dayan, but after seeing Comrade, Time of Favor, and now Doctor Pomerantz, I recognize his art. If you like contemporary Israeli cinema, this is one you'll enjoy.
