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.

terrible
29 May 2005 | by anni_shaaSee all my reviews

This movie is very bad. The acting is the worst i've seen so far. Ricky Gal should only sing and not to act ever ever again! the other actors are terrible as well (Aki Avni is awful). The movie just ruined the beautiful book of a.b Yehushaua. Also the movie isn't going according to the book. The director just added some stupid details and changed the plot and the personalities of the characters. If you want to laugh about stupid movie like that then go and see it (and fall asleep) otherwise don't come near it!!! Go read the book but never never see this movie...the book is really interesting and if you saw this stupid movie and thats why you don't want to read the great book, read it because it's nothing at all like the movie.
