Storyline

Ben Rubin, a young Israeli internist vying for the position of surgeon, learns that his internship has been terminated and he has been chosen to accompany Abraham Lazar, the hospital administrator and his wife, Dori on a trip to India. Dori is 50 years old, actually the exact age of Ben's mother. In India, with Ben's help, the couple intends to retrieve their ailing sick daughter, who is stuck in a Buddhist monastery in a far off and remote village. They intend to bring her back to Tel-Aviv in order to save her life. This journey awakens in Ben an erotic passion that dares to destroy his tidy world as he pursues an illicit love affair, not with the administrator's daughter, but with his wife, Dori.

Don't bother wasting your time
1 February 2007 | by darling-girlSee all my reviews

Waste of time. Really awful. Terrible acting -- Riki Gal, I'm talking to you. I don't know how much the film deviated from the book, but the story was completely unbelievable, especially with Riki Gal and Aki Avni as their respective characters and together as a couple. (I actually am fond of Aki Avni, who, I thought, was pretty good in Tironut.) We're supposed to believe that a mother, in order to spend more alone time with the hot young doctor, would abandon her almost dying daughter time and time again? That this doctor obsesses over this pathetic excuse for a mother? I don't know how it ends because I couldn't possibly watch any more. Don't waste your time on it.
