Three elderly men and grandson Yonatan find themselves stuck together in a Jerusalem nursing home. The kid is a genius, but stammers and is bullied at school. Yonatan's grandfather, Eliahu, whom he had never met, is a former member of the Lehi (pre-State Jewish underground), and a cold person. Eliahu's best friend from Lehi, Nick, is full of ambition and passion that will never materialize; and Eliahu's English brother-in-law, a has-been, third-rate actor in debt for 232,000 euros. There's one thing keeping them together - they all want to rob the bank that employed Yonatan's deceased father to avenge it for not paying the Yonatan's mother compensation for his dad's death, due to the "small print" in his employment contract. And they want the money to make their last wish come true. Written by
... movie that is. With a very prominent face -> Patrick Stewart. He is the one character who's talking in English (other characters speak English to him as well), but this is a refreshing new take in Israeli cinema. And it all might have started with two horror movie friends. Genre cinema can creep into every corner of the world and it's nice to see movies with different sensibilities.
This movie though may have needed a bit of a rewrite here and there, but it's decent enough to have fun with it. It's clear that the filmmakers have seen their fair share of heist and con thrillers over the years. You get a feeling that they are toying with you a bit. In a good sense that is
