One of the Israeli Masterpices
2 May 2006 | by adef-5See all my reviews

An old Israeli movie (yes 1979 is old in terms of Israeli cinema) featuring an astonishingly beautiful Anat Atzmon, and some of the Israeli cult figures Gidi Gov, Meir Swisa, Gali Atari etc. Tel Aviv of the 70s atmosphere is accompanied by a great soundtrack. Overall the movie is very sincere and emotional still very much relevant for our days, it is very humane and unlike most of the Israeli movies isn't about war, holocaust or a stupid comedy.

To conclude, it is highly recommended for all of you to watch, it is the Hohmat Ha Beigale of the 70s.

P.S The only problem is that it was filmed on a lousy tape but the quality is tolerable. It also has French subtitles (may be useful for some of you, I could show it to my girlfriend who don't understand Hebrew and she loved it)
