The film deliberately avoids specifying the locale, substituting "your country" and "you people" for Israel. See more »
The action begins with a scene set in the passenger cabin of an airliner. The title character (the American hippie) is sitting in a window seat, taking in the view seen from the very large, oval panoramic window next to his seat. The very large, oval panoramic window (about 4 x larger than a standard passenger cabin window) was a distinctive feature of the Vickers Viscount turboprop airliner. But the plane that arrives at the airport and from which the hippie disembarks is a Douglas DC-7 or a Boeing 707 turbojet with small, standard sized passenger cabin windows. See more »
This bizarre movie was made by a former lifeguard turned short film maker, stars fairly good actors (some of whom were stars on the Tel Aviv theater stages for years to come) hamming it up or just given odd direction, has an alright but VERY repetitive score by one of Israel's greatest composers, and contains such unforgettable scenes as the "STOP PUSHING BUTTONS" speech, a psychedelic dream sequence involving smashing giant tape recorder things with a sledgehammer, a hippie-palooza in an abandoned warehouse, random toplessness, cardboard sharks, loooooooooong wandering across desert islands, and the main cast screaming out "Wonderful Feeling!" over and over. The insane ending has to be seen to be believed. If you can get your hands on this film (or if that DVD ever comes out), get some friends over and get ready to riff the hell out of it: this film is plan 9 quality stuff, and I love every minute of it.
