Bentzi, Momo, and Yuda'leh are three teenage boys growing up in 1950's Israel, which is not much different from 1950's America if you believe what you see in the film.

Meanwhile, while Bentzi is working delivering ice to people he comes across a voluptous nympho. For some reason he leaves his job and gets his friends, who are promptly invited inside and divested of their virginity in an explicit softcore sex scene. Momo goes first, then the obese Yuda'leh. Before Bentzi can have his turn the nypho's sailor boyfriend suddenly returns from the sea and chases the boys away, Yuda'leh being forced to run away naked.

All Time Classic!
19 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

This show rises great memories of my own youth. Always worth watching and makes me laugh, even on a bad day.

There are one or two movies, which couldn't keep up with the rest, but the first two and the last one are highly recommended!
