Saw this at an Israeli film festival as it was billed as a comedy. If you like depictions of loveless sex, violent rape and attempted abortion you'll be rolling in the aisles with this one. The plot involves a 30 something single woman being cajoled by her mother into trying to fall pregnant, by any means possible except through a sperm bank or artificial insemination. A collection of incidental acquaintances add nothing to the plot and the people she meets in her quest are so far out of any semblance of reality that any jokes, of which there are none, would be stillborn anyway. These people are not just unrealistic, they are not recognisable as actual humans. 90% of the characters are unpleasant and the remainder incomprehensible or boring. The editing jerks the movie from scene to scene as if it was all shot to some other script and then cut to this when the original was seen to be a disaster. Not funny, not clever, not nice. I've only spent this time writing a review to save my fellow movie goers the pain of a wasted 90 minutes.
