Film undoubtedly directed by pretentious high school students, during an internship.
Cons: 1. Yoav runs away from Israel because Israel is, I literally quote, "méchant, obscène, hideux, ... " and he arrives in Paris to work within the embassy of (guess what!) Israel. Incredible! It's moronic... 2. Yoav does not speak. Yoav yells or shouts. Constantly. Unnecessarily. Sometimes, to change, Yoav screams. It's boring... 3. Yoav impregnates himself, idly and condescendingly, from the customs and traditions of the Parisian natives to fill the void of his own life. It's depressing... 4. Yoav plays music with a machine gun, on a French song interpreted by the american band Pink Martini. It's almost funny. But no, actually. 5. Yoav is sometimes filmed with a basic camera held by a person obviously suffering from epilepsy: right, left, up, down, ... quickly and randomly. I was almost seasick. 6. ... 7. ... and so on, and so on ... 8. ...
Pros: 1. Paris, the city. However, I live there and I may see this city everyday; then, I do not need to waste my time during two (long!) hours in a movie theater, for this kind of movie. So, finally, no positive point. Definitely!
