Storyline

Yaki and Shaul are two teenage brothers who share a strong, almost telepathic connection. Their family is suffering from an overgrowing debt, which has caused their father to fall into a deep depression. The brothers feel that they can't just stand on the sidelines while their family falls apart. Till recently, they were helpless. But now with Yaki's enlistment to the army, like every other 18 year old Israeli boy, he is given a rifle. This rifle gives the brothers the power they need to act and at once they are transformed from helpless teenagers into men.

Realistic Drama too close to Reality but full of Surprise
12 September 2013 | by shmulik-cohenSee all my reviews

Hanoar Youth 2013 Two Brothers one a Soldier with Automatic gun. Kidnap a Female Teenager Played by Gita Emily Hoping to cash the Ransom. This money should solve tough Financial Problems of the Family. Moshe Ivgy The Patriarchal Father has done similar Leading Roles in many Movies and TV series. He is having a Crisis. The Pace of the Movie is Fast and Full of Surprises Suitable for International Audiences. But Middle East is like that so at some points looks Boring.The excellent Script makes it like a Thriller. Hanoar (Youth) reminds us of Bar-Noar, An Attack on Homosexual Club for teenagers that took 4 years investigation and only recently the suspect was caught and Indicted. The Style is similar to CSI Miami Vice, Los Angeles or NYPD of New York. 9 out of 10 points.
