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.

Embarrassing
17 August 2008 | by cfriverdogSee all my reviews

One of the all-time worst movies I've ever seen. One line will give you an idea of how cringe-inducing the writing is: "Pray to the cruel god Buddha..." The writing exhibits an almost willful stupidity about Eastern religions, showing statues of Hindu deities in what is supposed to be a Buddhist monastery of some kind, in Bodh-Gaya, the birthplace of the Buddha. Buddha is constantly referred to as a "god" by Indians who are clearly Hindu. Then there's the rest of the script which is completely contrived and barely coherent. Characters are constantly being thrown around by the writer and director. The actors look like they wish they were in a different film, wondering what ever possessed them to take *this* job. I was surprised to see that this mess was actually based on a novel by A.B. Yehoshua, a highly respected modern Israeli author. I'm curious to see how different it is from the film.
