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

Incredibly Funny !
11 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

An Entertaining motion picture to the extent that I've managed to forgot when was the last time I had so many laughs watching an Israeli movie. This is a truly Israeli-well-made-quality movie featuring the best actors as could ever be casted to such a movie !

When you think of Moni Mushonov and how funny he can be than you don't even begin to apprehand how funny he is in this amazing movie. Moni has always been (Since I can remember myself as a young kid) the character to fall in love with and laugh from the second you lay your eyes on him. Gabai, Evgy & "Jean Luc-Pikard" - who would imagine such a cast for an Israli Flic. They are wonderful together and I Loved it, Go and watch and laugh till your eyes pop out :)
