Storyline

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 Omri Kesten

A great evenings entertainment
1 May 2014 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this and we sniggered away at all the vulgarity and many jokes. No ghastly PC humour here and a refreshing take on ADHT. What I found interesting was the depth of tragedy, characterisation and realistic exchanges along with what was essentially slapstick. I can recommend this as pretty good evenings entertainment. Sasson Gabai and Moni Moshonov are wonderful as two old 'terrorists' underplayed their roles to great comic effect. A great performance from Gil Blank as the grandson. A nice surprise is Patrick Stewart playing the uncle an awful English ham which he appears to relish. 'Dying is easy, it's comedy that's difficult' I'm giving it an 8 as it deserves it.
