Goofs

When Eyal visits Menachem's Berlin hotel, a shot down its hall reveals that all the rooms have Mezuzot on the doorframes. At the door to Menachem's room, the only room without a Mezuzah, there is a clearly visible unpainted patch from which the Mezuzah had been removed just for that shot. A Mezuzah is a small box filled with bible passages (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and 11:13-21). Jews put them on the doorframes of houses and other buildings. Their presence reveals that the filmmakers used an Israeli location for that hotel instead of a German one. See more »

Quotes

Axel Himmelman: [tries to walk on the sea and falls in]
Eyal: [sarcastically] Bravo. You did it.
Axel Himmelman: You don't understand. You can't just come to the Sea of Galilee and start walking on water. If you could, everybody would be doing it. You need to prepare yourself.
Eyal: And how would you do that? Please enlighten me.
Axel Himmelman: Well, you need to completely purify yourself. Your heart needs to be like it's clean from the inside: no negativity, no bad thoughts.
Eyal: And then?
Axel Himmelman: And then you can walk on water. I'm sure of it.

Great Movie!
26 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

I have seen this movie a few days ago, and I am still thinking about it. I believe this is one of the best films I have seen in a very long while. The film has a rare combination of being fun to watch and amusing at times, combined with a real deep movie with real deep characters and sophisticated.

It is safe to say that the film is not clean of some logical flaws, but they do not disturb the flow of the film. I loved everything about this film, from the script to the acting and to the excellent photography (which, I have to admit, is rare in Israelie movies, at least until the last few years).

Although I do understand that Israelies and Germans are more likely to connect to this film, I recommend it to everybody. I think it can be appreciated by anyone who likes quality cinema.

Ofer.
