Israeli cinema at its very worst
11 October 2007 | by remervisionSee all my reviews

This film has no direction, no script, no good acting performances, no humour, no feeling and no humanity. The plot and storyline is totally ludicrous and unbelievable. In addition to this the film is incredibly badly made with appalling camera work, terrible lighting and sound, and looks like it wasn't edited properly. It really is an amateur attempt to made a film. It's an embarrassment to the people who made it and should never be shown in public. It certainly has no place in Israeli cinema, or in any cinema. After it ended we felt like we had totally wasted our time sitting watching it. I cannot say one good thing about this film.
