Well made Movie and Relevant. The "Restless" Rat Race.
Many Israelis feel that Tel Aviv-Yaffo is like New York or becoming to be so. The Rich beside those who have dropped down the Social Economic Ladder. Moshe Ivgy has taken part in many films with similar characters as Middle Age Israeli males in the "Rat Race". Also it is very common amongst Israelis for many years to try a new life in New York. The Script is Excellent and well paced. Israelis who ignore that uneasy feeling in Israel of loss of Direction all though Israel has very big success's too are just Blind. You will find similar Scripts by Assy Dayan and Others. Dayan's Movies are even more Stark and Brutal. Israeli Soldiers have a tough time and when they finish the Army they leave Israel for sometimes years. On the Other hand there Is the Israeli Export of Arms and Hi-tech that attracts many to spend years outside of Israel. Highly Relevant Movie. But can be misunderstood.
