Storyline

Two Israeli car dealers, Shmuel and Siso, invest five thousand American dollars into a vintage 1985 Lincoln Continental Limousine that they plan to sell in Germany for fifty grand. But when they take it there, they run into problems with the customs police, who are suspicious of Middle Easterners with a huge American gas guzzler. The routine search causes Shmuel to experience a disturbing hallucination about WWII Germany and the Nazis his parents fled from some sixty years earlier. And their adventure in Germany turns into a struggle just to make it out safely, as the echoes of the past catch up with them.

Two Israeli friends travel in an American-made limousine to Germany, hoping to sell it there to make a fortune.
11 September 2009 | by skymount37See all my reviews

It's a 2004 film & i only get to see it tonight ( 10th September 2009) in conjunction with Israel- Film-Festival in Singapore. It is a film with poignant human emotions. Most of us know about how the Jews of Israel suffer under the Nazi-Germans during the Holocaust. If you and your ancestors have traumatic memories of the Holocaust, would you choose to go there to make a fortune or even migrate to Germany with your family for a better life? How would you think about the younger Germans there will interact with you? You may be surprised if you answer the questions with pre-conceived notions. It's not as straight-forward as a story about forgiveness, mercy & redemption. Do go for it with an open-mind if you happen to bump into its screening just as i do. I'm moved to tears as it make me realise that life's setbacks and unpredictable circumstances can point towards our shared humanity.
